Whizz-bang county stars take national firework display award
A fireworks display company had the crowd "oohing" and "aahing" as they put on a winning show at a national competition.
Komodo Fireworks, of Market Harborough, triumphed at the British Musical Fireworks Championships in Southport.
The business, which specialises in displays for events and weddings, beat six of the UK's top fireworks display teams to take home the title.
Komodo spokeswoman Lexy Sosbe said the team had spent "hundreds of hours" preparing for the show.

She said: "We had to pull out of the competition last year due to an electrical fire, so the organisers asked us to return this year as they were impressed with what they had seen at the start of our display.
"We put on the same show, with some modifications.
"We had an 'around the world' theme, so we started with an announcement welcoming the audience on board their Komodo flight round the world.
"We picked key tracks from different parts of the world – Irish music and Chinese music, for example – and took the audience on a journey round the world with fireworks set specifically for the music.
"We were absolutely ecstatic to win."
