CHRISTMAS LIGHTS have started to be put up all over town ahead of the festive season.
A road maintenance team was seen on Bond Street in Brighton last night putting up some of the decorations, with illuminations of reindeer, owls and Christmas presents.
The team was seen using an aerial platform to help install the lights across the street.
It comes as festive items and Christmas cards pop up in stores across the city.

Last year’s Christmas lights were switched on by BBC Radio Sussex’s Allison Furns along with actor Carl Tracey.
The event was the first of its kind since the pandemic, with hundreds gathering on East Street to enjoy Christmas music.
New lights designed by Brighton street artists were lit along North Street and Western Road for last year’s festive season, including a toy robot walking past a stereo, a reindeer lit up in different colors and an alien in a Santa hat.
The lights are organized by Brilliant Brighton, a coalition of more than 500 companies in the city’s Business Improvement District.
