Last night saw the first three teams take to the skies over Plymouth Hoe in an attempt to win the British Firework Championships 2018.

Firing last night was Fuse Fireworks from Nottinghamshire, Fully Fused from Bedfordshire and UK Fireworks Company from London who all took full advantage of the beautiful setting over the water on the Hoe preceded by a stunning sunset.

The event was first held in 1997 and today represents one of the biggest and fiercely fought competitions of the UK firework event calendar.

Tonight will see Smart Pyrotechnics, Phoenix Fireworks, and Illusion Fireworks take centre stage in their attempt to win the coveted prize. However, the news is that the weather may cause some issues as rain is expected in the area from 9pm - 11pm.

If you are in the area, remember to get there early and getting away from the Hoe can be a challenge because of the numbers of spectators so allow a considerable amount of time to leave.
