Visitors are traveling from afar to see the restored nativity scene at Noble's hospital.

There was controversy last year when the display was moved to the hospital's chapel - but now it's back with pride of place in the main foyer.

Hospital staff have been volunteering to repair and refurbish it, and Island charity Men In Sheds have created a new crib.

Hospital Director of Operations Barbara Scott says parents are making the journey specially to show their children, and the display has even had to be roped off.

There's still time to see the installation, which will be there until January 4th.
