A “magnificent” display of fireworks lit up the dark November sky above Wanstead Flats on Bonfire Night.

Newham Council held its annual display in the southern part of Epping Forest, in Park Road, Wanstead, on Saturday night.

A vast array of multi-coloured fireworks wowed the crowd on the anniversary of Guy Fawkes’ attempt to blow up Parliament.

Onlookers took to Twitter in their praise.
