A photo of some rude festive decorations is doing the rounds on social media – with people pointing the finger at Bromley.

The photo of an interestingly placed candle and some berries, resembling a part of the human anatomy, is causing quite a stir.

The saucy snap has gone viral on Twitter with countless retweets, but the council cryptically denied they erected the dodgy decor. 

When approached by News Shopper, a council spokesman simply said: “There won’t be any embarrassed faces in Bromley but why not come along on the 29th November to the lights switch on and find out for yourself?”

But it appears the image is an old hoax typically circulated around the festive season, with sightings reported last Christmas and rumours they also graced the port of Dover. 

MORE TOP STORIES The lights trick has not just pointed the finger at Bromley this time round, with rumours the same decorations were floating around Greenhithe.

Photos were posted on Facebook group Greenhithe Residents, with Ben O’Brien claiming they were along the High Street.

In Facebook post, Swanscombe councillor Richard Lees replied: “In the eight years I’ve been a town councillor at Swanscombe and Greenhithe Town Council, we have never put up lights like these in either Swanscombe or Greenhithe.”

He added their official light switch-on should take place at the beginning of December.

Bromley Council’s Christmas ceremony is pencilled in for the end of November with stars from Churchill Theatre’s pantomime.
