Orchestrated by MLE Pyrotechnics the teams competing included Gala Fireworks, of Northampton, Magic and Miracle Fireworks, of Nottingham and Two Tigers Fireworks, of Devon.

Managing director for MLE Pyrotechnics, Mat Lawrence, said: “Ultimately the audience decide which display they like best and vote via text.

“The attendance was definitely up on last year and I’d say we had around 8,000 spectators.

“Hundreds chose to camp out on the site overnight and the weather stayed dry which was the main thing.
