COULD these be the region’s most impressive homespun Christmas lights?

Julie and Jeff Wright have been attracting attention with their display at their home in West Auckland Road, Darlington.

The flamboyant decorations include more than 3,000 light bulbs, complete with an eight metre inflatable Santa.

Mrs Wright said the lights brought as much enjoyment to her as they do the couple’s two daughters, Ellie aged nine, and Shannon, aged 17.

She said: “The attention has been non-stop, with people stopping to take photos – even policemen and ambulance drivers have commented on the lights.

“We did quite a big display last year and have added to it this year.”
