Christmas lights extravaganza dazzles Co Durham

A Christmas-mad tree surgeon who has covered his home in lights to raise cash for the Teenage Cancer Trust and “bring the festive magic back for the kids” says his electricity bill will only be £300. Andrew Walters’ spectacular display has become a Christmas tradition in the village of Stillington, Co. Durham, and 400 people came from as far away as Leeds for this year’s grand switch-on at the weekend.
