People gathered in their thousands to see the sky light up on Friday night during Lynn’s annual Fawkes in The Walks firework and bonfire spectacular.

The spectacular, now in its ninth year, saw visitors enjoy live music, fairground rides and, of course, a dazzling display of fireworks during the night.

And a town police cadet was praised for his work to help find a child who disappeared during the evening.

The free bonfire evening is one of the highlights of the town’s events calendar and this year was no different.

The fun started with a host of stalls and rides, before borough mayor Carol Bower lit the bonfire.

The more technologically-advanced visitors were also able to enjoy the Fawkes in The Walks’ very own Snapchat filter for the first time ever.

Volunteers were praised for their support during the evening, and one police cadet in particular was commended for his help in finding a missing eight-year-old boy.

A post on the King’s Lynn Police Twitter account said: “One of our cadets really helped out tonight when an eight-year-old boy was reported missing. Russian being one of his four languages spoken #3266.”

The event, which is organised by West Norfolk Council, was enjoyed by people of all ages, and residents took to social media to show their appreciation.

Dayna Woolbright said on Twitter: “Another brilliant year at #FawkesinTheWalks thanks @WestNorfolkBC.”
