Fireworks On But Bonfire Off in Selby as Firefighters Strike


2:32pm 31st October 2014

A bonfire night in Selby tomorrow will be without a bonfire but organisers say the rest of the event, including the fireworks display, will still take place.

Selby Town Council has had to ditch the idea of lighting it's bonfire due to public safety concerns. It's a firefighters begin a four day strike from 6pm tonight in a row with the government over pensions.

Organisers emphasise the rest of the event, including an appearance by Minster FM, will still go ahead as planned.

The town council is apologising to people in Selby for the disappointment but says public safety has to come first.
