Max's late father Ray with the lights in 2016.
Still Glowing Strong...
What are believed to be Britain's oldest working fairy lights have been switched on - for the 72nd Christmas out of the last 73.
Max Liverton inherited the string of 12 lights after his father Ray died a few weeks before last Christmas.
At the time Max, 55, couldn't find the lights amid all the old boxes left for him inside his dad's home.
It meant that last Christmas was the first one the trusty old lights hadn't been used since they were bought in 1946 by Max's grandfather, Burt.
