The new-look Ipswich Cornhill has been the subject of some great festive shots. Aimee Ashworth took a photo of the illuminated ghost caribou act which entertained Christmas shoppers at the Cornhill.

The caribou in Ipswich town centre also provided a photo theme for another Instagram user, sumitsurai.
