Melksham house Christmas lights raise money for hospice

A Wiltshire electrician has transformed his modest home into the ultimate Christmas illuminations extravaganza.

Alex Goodhind, from Melksham, spent five weeks, and installed three separate electricity supplies to illuminate the house.

The display uses more than 100,000 light bulbs and is estimated to cost about £1,200 over four weeks.

The house lights are turned on from 17:30 to 22:00 GMT daily.
