The lights, which have been in situ since August, leaving motorists frustrated at long delays, were decorated with tinsel just before Christmas.

The gesture raised a few smiles with motorists on the way to work. Graham Knott added the tinsel to bring attention to the fact that there were no Christmas lights in the village.
