Thousands of people lined Plymouth's waterfront last night for the final of this year's British Firework Championships.

Poor weather conditions forced the Red Arrows to cancel their display but the fireworks were welcomed with cheers from spectators.

The Red Arrows have cancelled their display at tonight's fireworks in Plymouth due to the bad weather.

Despite the rain clearing, they say the sea mist and low cloud has made it unsafe for them to fly.

The fireworks themselves, the second night of this year's spectacular British Fireworks Championships, are still going ahead as planned.
