Volunteers from the Italian town of Gubbio have finally completed three months of work preparing one of the world's largest Christmas trees.

The medieval town's tree is made up from over 800 lights laid out on the side of Mount Ingino.

These World Tallest Christmas tree is 800 metres high (2624 feet), 400 meters (1312 feet) wide. On the top of the tree and at the summit of the mountain, a star over 1000 meters (3,280 feet) long sparkles in the night sky.

"This started in 1981 when some inhabitants decided to make this tree which then became considered the biggest tree in the world," said the head of the Christmas tree committee Danilo Sannipoli.

"There are about 15-20 kilometers of cables involved, thousands of electric plugs to connect and hundreds and hundreds of lights that make up this Christmas display," he said.

This year, the tree is even greener than usual, with solar panels being used to cut down on electric power.

"For us in Gubbio, this Christmas tree has become a real tradition, we just couldn't do without it", said young Gubbio resident Matteo Fumanti.

"Particularly for those of us who are young like myself, we have always been able to look at this tree," he said.

Local inhabitants from miles around get the benefit of seeing the tree which lies on the side of the slope at some 900 metres high.

The copy, which comes from the collection of Lord Hesketh, had been expected to fetch up to £6m.

Only 119 complete copies of the 19th-Century book are known to exist, and 108 are owned by museums and libraries.

A separate edition of the book on ornithology sold for a record-breaking price of $8.8m (£5.7m) a decade ago.

It contains 1,000 life-sized illustrations of almost 500 breeds and took wildlife artist John James Audubon 12 years to complete.

He did so by travelling across America, shooting the birds and then hanging them on bits of wire to paint them.

The artist then went to Britain to print the volumes and targeted the rich to buy copies.
London dealer Michael Tollemache, who bought the copy at the Sotheby's auction, said the book was "priceless".
Lord Hesketh's collection also included a rare copy of Shakespeare's First Folio, which Sotheby's said was "the most important book in all of English Literature".
Of the 750 that were probably printed, only 219 are known to exist today.
The copy, which dates back to 1827 and has three pages missing, sold for £1.5m.
It is one of only three textually complete copies to exist in private hands in a comparably early binding.
