Firework displays across the Fylde coast were as popular as ever.

An estimated 2,000 people attended the first Bonfire Night held at St Annes Cricket Club in St Annes.

Organiser Chris Joy hailed the event as a “tremendous success”.

He added: “I guess it was one of the best attended in the Fylde coast. The firework display was a real spectacular to match any.

“Eight-year-old Freddie Wright (pictured) pressed the remote control from the players balcony to ignite the display while the town crier, Colin Ballard, did the countdown to him hitting the button.”

Other Bonfire Night displays held at Fylde Rugby Club and Lytham’s Park View were equally successful, while on Saturday, a fireworks display takes place at Kirkham and Wesham Cricket Club from 6pm.
