The firework finale to Hastings Old Town Carnival Week is in danger of not going ahead this year.

Hastings Borough Council has issued a warning today (Wednesday, August 7) to say the fireworks might be cancelled due to the weather.

A council spokesman said: “There is a yellow warning for weather this Saturday. A decision will be made about whether the fireworks can go ahead, but not until Saturday.

“If it is windy, we know people will be disappointed, but the safety of spectators comes first.”

The firework finale is due to commence at dusk (around 9pm) on Saturday (August 10), on the West Hill, and is usually visible from all parts of the town.
