Tiverton's Christmas lights have been mocked on the internet because they look like giant green pants.

The Christmas lights, which cost £15,000, have given some festive cheer to the town but some are saying they look like a washing line covered in underwear.

Posting on Facebook Janet Johns wrote: 'Ok, if they are not pants.... what are they?" while George Parker wrote on Twitter: "Looking forward to heading home for Xmas to see Tiverton's now infamous pants."

Tiverton Town Council raise funds to pay for the Christmas lights throughout the year.
