    Question Flickering tea lights

    Does anyone know where I can buy packs of flickering tea lights at a reasonable price?

    I need the ones that flicker yellow - not the plain white ones and not the bizarre multi-coloured ones.

    I also need them to have a battery compartment which allows the batteries to be replaced.

    Could anyone please advice, and provide a link if possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought some from Sports Direct at Christmas, so don't know if they'll still have them in now.

    They're white candles with a white 'flame', but when switched on they flicker yellow. The battery can be replaced.

    How many do you need? I've got some spare if you can't find any.

    I bought some from Amazon a couple of years ago but haven't got a link, sorry. Have just bought some of the bizarre colour changing ones too! They are a bit OTT but the kids do love them!

    Last summer I put the phone down on some imbecile from County Hall, shouted "God's turban and tutu, but I want to drown the lot of them in their own drool" and turned round to face a mum at the patio doors, smiling and saying, "you left the back gate unlocked, but I bolted it behind me."
