Video: Burnham-On-Sea's Trinity Close Christmas lights draw crowds

A Burnham-On-Sea cul-de-sac's stunning display of over 100,000 twinkling Christmas lights - whcih has been dubbed by the national press as 'Britain's most festive street' - is attracting large numbers of visitors.

The Trinity Close residents have decorated their homes top to bottom with colourful lights, in addition to roofs, lawns and garden fences, and the display is lit each night from 4.30pm-10pm until January 4th, helping two local charities.

The lights raised £11,688 for charity last year and this year's collection will benefit PETAL: The Christine Woodberry Memorial Trust and Burnham's own BARB Search & Rescue, which operates the town's rescue hovercrafts and inshore rescue boats.

Resident Roger Flower told "It's a superb display this year - it gets bigger and better every year."

"Several of the residents have installed new extra lights this year - it's great to see the display continuing to grow and helping two great local charities."

This year's display includes moving reindeer, illuminated trees and lanterns, and visitors can also see if they can find a toy train display.

The traditional displays have raised a huge total of more than £72,000 since the charity collections began ten years ago.

Visitors are also being asked to be courteous to residents by parking sensibly and not blocking drives. The residents are working with Burnham Police to try and reduce congestion.
