Christmas Light Record

An Australian family who put more than half a million Christmas lights on their house have claimed a world record - for the second time

Father-of-three David Richards, from Canberra, Australia, first entered the record books in 2011 with 331,038 lights - but was beaten by a family from New York. Now Mr Richards, his wife Janean and children Aidan, 13, Caitlin, ten, and Madelyn, six, have reclaimed the record with 31 miles of wire in their suburban home. Mr Richards, who is hoping to raise more than £50,000 for children's charities, said: 'I have always loved Christmas'.
