World's largest mistletoe revealed

Passenger pashing picks up this Crimbo

The world's largest sprig of mistletoe has been unveiled at London's Heathrow International Airport. The structure is over three metres long and two-and-a-half metres high, and took construction crews three weeks to assemble. The decoration weighs 43 kilos and includes more than 50 feet of steel tubing and 25 stainless steel balls.

The giant mistletoe hangs three metres above the arrival terminal, and will great the one million passengers scheduled to arrive this month.

According to chief operating officer, Mike Brown, "Heathrow is very often the place where friends and lovers are reunited at Christmas, or where people start their long journeys home to loved ones. We hope our giant mistletoe brings some added Christmas cheer and excitement to journeys taken over the festive period."
