Work to replace ageing street lights in the Skipton area will start earlier than planned.

It was originally scheduled to begin in January, but has been brought forward and will get under way within the next two weeks.

North Yorkshire County Council's programme involves replacing standard steel columns with LED lanterns which are designed to reduce light pollution and spillage of light onto properties.

They are also more efficient, reducing energy consumption and the carbon footprint.
