A filmmaker gathered the wintery wonders of Wanstead together for a Christmas music video.

Marc Coleman, who has lived in Wanstead for more than three years, enlisted the help of more than 75 people in the community to help him make The Wanstead Christmas Music Video.

The video, set to Mariah Carey's classic All I Want for Christmas Is You, features singing milkmen, a youth choir, a nursery, beavers and many more.

Marc produced, directed and edited the video himself over 15 shoots and debuted the video this week.

Some of the groups who participated include estate agent Petty Sons and Prestwich, Treehouse Nursery, Eaton Manor Girls Rugby team, milkman Steve Hayden, music group Jingle Bop, Wanstead Parish Junior choir, tea shop Time for Tea and Young Citizen nominee Elsa Arnold.
