Three businesses in Paisley have been recognised for their creative festive displays this year.

A total of 24 traders took part in the Best Dressed Christmas Window Competition, organised by business improvement organisation Paisley First.

This year's contest was judged by St Mirren legend Tony Fitzpatrick, who runs competition website Legacy Comps.
