This year's bonfire and fireworks was a huge success and despite battling with fog the display at Markeaton Park was well received by the people of Derby.

Dino and Pete of Capital FM did a fantastic job of warming up the crowd at Sunday's event, with Councillor Paul Pegg, Mayor of Derby, setting off the bonfire with an onstage count down.

The night was also supported by local musical acts, with singer songwriter Kezia Gill making her presence known with a beautiful cover of Adele's new single Hello and local cover band Peashooter winning over the crowd with a selection of hits.   

There was a fantastic response from the locals of Derby on the night, with a number of you messaging the Derby LIVE team on Facebook and Twitter to share your experience of the evening.
