The huge event last night, organised by Burnley Borough Council, was described as a great success by Coun. Ivor Emo, who lit the bonfire.

He said: "We couldn't have asked for a better night. The weather was fine and there must have been thousands of people there, an excellent turn-out.

"I saw lots of people with smiles on their faces. The community bonfire is always a great event in Burnley and this year's was no different."
