Complaints have resurfaced about faulty Christmas lights in Leighton town centre.

Despite upgrading the old analogue timers in September, there have been reports of faulty, flickering Christmas lights since they were turned on last week.

It now appears that wiring problems may be behind the latest episode of Leighton’s Christmas lighting woes.

Leighton-Linslade town clerk Mark Saccoccio said: “The issue is we’ve got electricity supplies that are fairly well-dated.

“We’re meeting with the contractor on Tuesday and we’re trying to make the best of the situation.

“Looking forward, we have to consider investing considerable amounts of money for up-to-date wiring or other alternative solutions.”

Back in 2011, Conservative councillor Stephen Cotter described the High Street lighting as looking like a “shambles” due to its faulty timers.
