The town’s parade has attracted up to 60,000 spectators previously, but local councils and the emergency services called for a low-key event this year due to Covid concerns.

The event is famous for burning celebrity effigies – including Prime Minister Boris Johnson in 2019.

The hugely popular parade is organised by seven bonfire societies, many of which date to the 19th century.
