Firework displays will be back with a loud bang this week as Weston and North Somerset's sky braces itself for the first bonfire night undeterred by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The long-held tradition, bizarrely, celebrates Guy Fawkes' failed gunpowder plot of 1605 which aimed to blow up the House of Lords and assassinate King James I.

This will be the first Bonfire Night celebration in 18 months for many organisers such as the Grand Pier which will bring back its Fireworks At Sea display.
