Thousands of visitors were dazzled by a stunning fireworks display in Manor Park, Aldershot on Saturday.

Organised by Rushmoor borough council the Rushmoor Fireworks Spectacular was due to take place two weeks ago, but had to be postponed due to the high winds.

RBC's town centre and cultural manager, David Phillips, who organised the event, said the delayed performance was worth the wait.

He said: "The display was the best we have ever had, it was phenomenal.

"We were extremely pleased and proud of it."

Traditionally the display pulls in between seven and 10,000 visitors, depending on the weather.

Mr Phillips said this year's show, which included an early ten-minute display for children under five, stayed clear until the first explosion of the main display, when it began to rain.

He added: "We also had arguably our best stage show ever, hosted by 96.4 radio, we had Fuzz Universe a local five-piece band and also Phill Aaron, a swing singer and cast of the Snow White pantomime, which is showing at the Princes Hall.

"It was a great success. we were really pleased.

"We were sorry to have to have postponed it two weeks ago, but it was a great success."
