A leading Cambridge company, which provides the lighting for the set of the BBC hit show, Strictly Come Dancing, has been visited by the city's MP David Howarth.

Mr Howarth discussed the country's economic situation and the problems businesses face coping with the difficult trading conditions when he went to Pulsar Light on the Coldham's Business Park.

As well as showcasing its work on the Strictly Come Dancing set, the company has also lit up the BBC's successful Top of the Pops show and a lavish production of Treasure Island at a Las Vegas hotel and casino.

One of the largest LED lighting schemes in the Middle East, at the Bahrain Financial Harbour, was also the work of the Pulsar Light launched 40 years ago by Cambridge University graduate, Paul Mardon.

Pulsar Light manufactures and supplies LED lighting and control systems for entertainment and architecture and has customers across the world.

Mr Howarth said: "Pulsar Light is an impressive business, trading in the global marketplace yet at the same time keeping its roots in Cambridge and employing local people.

"This company proves how one man's innovative idea can grow and become so successful. I wish Pulsar Light every success for the future.
