This was a good read, i like knowing how these big displays are set up :)
though this picture caught my eye



Firstly, can you imagine how deep the Fudge Berries! would be if you did that now!? :p
and second, the woman on the right isn't holding a firework, i'm pretty sure that was a french air strike missile from WW1, it's certainly bigger than what you can get at Tesco :D

They were :(
H & S get too involved as per usual, limit fireworks so much with regulations and acts. Then again, with the gear available today, maybe it isn't as stupid as it appears...
