Firework displays took place across the Falmouth and Helston area in the lead up to Bonfire Night on Monday.

They included a large display at Falmouth Cricket Club, run every year by Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service.

Huge crowds of people watched more than £8,000 fireworks set off to music, with entertainment from fire eaters in the run up to the display starting.

Each year the display raises thousands of pounds for local organisations and charities, which get a share of the profits.

Helston's Athletic Football Club's display, the main one for the area, had to be postponed from Saturday due to the forecast wind and heavy rain.

As a result, organisers moved the event to Monday, Bonfire Night itself, when the weather was much kinder and remained largely dry and a full display went ahead.

A club spokesperson said that safety was organisers' "number one priority", adding at the time: "It is with great disappointment that due to the high winds and forecast that our annual show has been postponed.

"The decision has been made in the interests of safety for both the public and the surrounding area."

Other displays in the area included one at Coverack on Monday and at St Keverne last Friday, when a bonfire and fireworks in the field behind the Three Tuns pub raised more than £1,200 for St Keverne Pre-school through entry fees and a raffle organised by the pre-school.

Heartlands at Pool also staged a large display, one of the biggest free displays in the area.
