Haifa's Christmas tree made of recycled bottles

In Haifa, northern Israel an artist has come up with a way round a Christmas tree shortage caused by forest fires.

The fake Christmas tree, made of 5,480 recycled bottles, was created by Israeli designer Hadas Itzcovitch and her father, artist Ernest Itzcovitch, to raise awareness of environmental issues.

It was finished shortly after country's worst forest fire in Carmel Heights that left 43 people dead and caused thousands to be evacuated from their homes.
