Ideal Home Show returns to the capital

The Ideal Home Show is back in London - Christmas style!

The showcase has built a reputation as the launch pad for new products, including the toaster and electric kettle in 1920, the microwave in 1947 and the electric grass mower 1970.

This year the event's Christmas showcase has returned and we went down to see it.
