Staffordshire street raises over £1,000 with Christmas lights extravaganza

A street in Burton on Trent has raised over £1,000 for charity after residents light up their homes with festive decorations.

Homeowners on Lansdowne Road in Branston have spent the last three weeks setting up their Christmas lights.

The spectacle has attracted hundreds of visitors every night, with many dressing up in Christmas costumes themselves.

Around a dozen residents helped create the light show which is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
