In Highbridge, the best house award went to Sharon Bowcott at 25 Smith Way with the runner-up Darren Bird at 25 South Avenue.

The award for the best group of illuminated houses went to Wordsworth Close in Burnham. First place in the best-decorated business category, judged by Kate Lawson and John Parkes, went to Secret World in Burnham's Victoria Street, while the runner-up was Back 2 Bikes at 15 Market Street in Highbridge.

A spokeswoman added: "The Town Council were pleased there were more entries than ever in 2015 and thank those who took part."
