Man told ‘switch off Xmas lights’

Christmas lights

A man has been told to turn down the glare of his Christmas lights this year after they caused too many complaints.For years Vic Moszcyznski has put up loads of lights, but neighbours have been moaning there are too many.

They say the lights attract crime to the area and cause traffic jams, as so many people slow down when they drive past the house to get a good look.

Now Mr Moszcyznski has been taken to court, and ordered him to limit the number of things he can put up.

Christmas lights

How the house used to look

More than 1,000 cars drove past the festive house every night for six weeks last Christmas, said police.

Thames Valley Police said more than 40 crimes committed in the area last year were “directly linked” to the lights.

Mr Moszcyznski has been putting up the lights for the last 18 years, and has raised more than £50,000 during that time for charity.
