Britain's oldest Christmas fairy lights are still going strong after 48 years - without a single bulb needing replacement.

Vina Shaddick, 68, was a teenager when she bought the colourful string of lights from Woolworths in 1969, the year the Beatles performed their final show on the roof of the Abbey Road studios.

The durable lights cost just £3 and have lasted for nearly 50 years.

Now her son Ross Shaddick, 38, is looking forward to the lights illuminating his house for another year, in pride of place in the front window.
