Dazzling video shows 50,000 lights adorning the branches of a magnificent magnolia tree in a contender for Britain's brightest Christmas decorations. Brij Kotecha, 43, spent 22 hours over two days painstakingly hanging over a mile of cables on the tree outside his home in Harvard Close, Oadby, Leics. The company director has been creating the stunning festive spectacle for residents to enjoy since 2005 when he started off with 3,000 lights. This video was shot on the 21st December 2020.
