Banbury area fireworks promise to be spectacular

Fireworks displays should be a cracker in Banburyshire as communities light the blue touch paper for bonfire night.

As well as many village displays the area offers the traditional Bodicote display, a free event in Brackley, courtesy of the AMG Petronas F1 Team, and even a fireworks party and stunt display at Silverstone.

Fireworks will thril this weekend.
