A couple who cover their house in thousands of Christmas lights and decorations every year have received hate mail for their spectacular festive display.
Paul Grant and Richard Burbidge spend weeks decorating their home, covering it in an estimated 30,000 lightbulbs.
But it appears not everyone is happy with the colourful scene, which attracts hundreds of visitors to the street.
Mr Grant has revealed the pair have received nasty anonymous letters in the past accusing them of ‘bringing the area down’ with their ‘tacky’ lights.
Mr Grant said: "We had an anonymous letter put through the door saying it was tacky, a waste of electricity and brought the area down. It just makes you want to go straight out, buy more and put them up right away. It’s obviously just someone being a bit of a scrooge.
"In this day and age, the lights are just a way of making themselves feel more festive. It get you in the mood for Christmas .It’s probably just someone who doesn’t like anything different, but they weren’t brave enough to put their name on it."
Mr Grant revealed the abuse after someone in the appropriately named Light Close, in Wiltshire, received a similar anonymous note slamming their ‘tacky’ icicle lights.
