VIDEO: Are THESE the best Christmas lights in South Yorkshire?

The countdown to Christmas continues and the festive decorations are going up.

And some families are taking things to a whole new level, turning the outside of their homes into dazzling festive light displays.

One Rotherham man - Simon Jones - has laid down the gauntlet to the people of South Yorkshire, challenging them outdo his Christmas lights efforts.

And it's a family affair for Simon, of Kimberworth. His parents Ian and Tracey have also got in on the act and bedecked their home with a brilliant selection of lights.

Simon said: "We have being doing this many years but decided to have a couple of years off.

"As you can see tho, we are back to our usual ways."

Are YOU keeping up with the Jones'? Are your Christmas lights better than theirs?
