A couple spent £8,000 decorating their home in lights for Remembrance Day

A couple spent £8,000 decorating their house in 12,000 lights - for a traffic-stopping Remembrance display.

Jackie North and husband Sean, both 37, first decorated their home to mark Armistice Day in 2022 - and decided to go bigger and better this year.

The property in Keelby, Lincolnshire, is now decorated with 12,000 lights and two giant poppies. Jackie turned on the lights on Tuesday - and said the street was filled with traffic and people wanting to pay their respects all last week.

The school kitchen assistant said: "We did Remembrance last year but we didn't have anywhere near as many lights. We had a poppy on the tree and in front of the garage with some lights. This year we have doubled our show to make it a lot nicer - we love lights so we keep adding more."

The pair say they spent £8,000 on their Remembrance display. But she says it is worth it because everyone thinks they are "beautiful".

Jackie said: "We wanted to pay our respects in our own way. It is really important we remember, we are here because of what the older generation did for us. Everyone loves the lights, we have had quite a few visitors last night - there has been a lot of traffic."
