Charity 'disappointed' that Christmas lights display is cancelled

Hampshire children's hospice, Naomi House, has told ITV Meridian of its disappointment that the popular Greyhound Close Christmas lights display won't be going ahead this year.

The charity has received around £45,000 from donations from the annual festive event in Hedge End in Hampshire.

It has been cancelled due to an ongoing row with council chiefs about increased traffic and damage to grass verges.

Pub of festive lights!

It's just over thirty shopping days to Christmas, and there's one pub that's already festooned in brightness - with thousands of lights. Not as many as previous years - to save on the electricity bill - but thousands nonetheless.

David Johns went to meet Phil Saunders, the landlord of The Marine pub in Eastbourne.
