King's Lynn's Fawkes in the Walks attracted thousands of visitors to the firework display.

Last Friday's display, which was also watched by 21,000 on a Snapchat stream put out by organisers West Norfolk Council, began following a slight delay due to a medical emergency.

The mayor of West Norfolk Geoff Hipperson lit the bonfire, before live music from local band The Chebbs.

Visitors were marshalled by 30 volunteers from King's Lynn Parkrun during the 15 minute display which was supported by a fun fair of 22 rides.
