WATCH: Bamburgh lights up

Bamburgh is twinkling its way towards Christmas following the switch on of the village’s lights on Saturday.

Popular village postie Vince Knox was given the honour this year, assisted by local lad Ben Potts.

Despite a cloudburst just at the moment the lights were switched on there was a good crowd in attendance, who walked to the village green following the earlier carol service.
