Christmas lights in Canberra set a new world record

Lawyer, David Richards has set a new world record for the largest ever display made up of LED lights after he organised a display of almost 1.2m Christmas lights.

The display in a shopping centre in Canberra, Australia, was powered by electricity donated by a local power company.

Mr Richards used the display to raise money for the SIDS and Kids ACT (Australian Capital Territory) charity.
