Brent: Fireworks display dazzles residents
Brent Council’s firework displays goes off without a hitch
A council’s fireworks display went ahead without a hitch after firefighters called off their Bonfire Night strike.
Thousands of people flocked to Roundwood Park, in Harlesden, to enjoy a dazzling display which lit up the night sky.
Families clad in their warmest winter garb and armed with sparklers oohed and aahed as stunning fireworks shot across the sky.
Some people had expressed fears over going ahead with public firework displays after the Fire Brigades Union announced plans for a two day walkout.
