Homes in School Street in Tyldesley were adorned with bright lights and festive decorations as part of a TV ad being filmed for Asda.

Camera crews turned the street into a winter wonderland complete with fairy lights and neon-lit stars and Christmas trees. Some scenes were even filmed inside residents' homes.

The supermarket giant would not reveal details of the advert, but did confirm they had been shooting the ad on the street.
