Bradley Lowery's cousins today switched on the Christmas lights at County Hall, Durham, in memory of the six-year-old.

Jorja, 8, Lasey, 7, and Harley Jay Stonebank, 6, joined Cllr Bill Kellett, chairman of the council, for the ceremony.

Bradley, who lost his fight against neuroblastoma earlier this year, performed the switch-on himself last Christmas.

Cllr Kellett said: "Bradley was such an inspiring boy and I know he really enjoyed turning the Christmas lights on. Wherever he went, he made everyone smile. This year I was happy to switch the Christmas lights on with his cousins in his memory."

As well as flicking the switch on Christmas trees outside County Hall and on the nearby roundabout, the youngsters also lit up two illuminated reindeers.
