Somerset town turns off lights for BBC Stargazing Live

People in an Exmoor town have switched off their lights as part of the BBC's Stargazing Live.

The people of Dulverton joined in the countdown as one by one the lights went out, in an effort to reduce light pollution and see the stars more clearly.

Unfortunately no stars were seen due to cloud cover, but that did not dampen the atmosphere, as the BBC's Jon Kay explains.
