Wonky Christmas tree alert

If you've been down to Trafalgar Square lately you'll have found it hard to miss the 25-metre tall Christmas tree, which was plonked into place by a hydraulic crane earlier this month. As is tradition, the tree was a gift from the people of Norway to say thank you for Britain's support doing WWII. Obviously we appreciate the effort, but like many of the gifts we'll all soon be receiving, there's something not quite right with it. People have started to point out that it's guilty of the worst of all Christmas tree sins – it's wonky. 

According to the Evening Standard, the wonky tree has been reported to the Greater London Authority (GLA), which is currently assessing whether they can get it fixed. A GLA spokesman admitted it 'has got a slight slant'. But hey, at least the tree isn't in a place where many people will see it. Oh wait...
