Fireworks firm lose out to the weather

A DAVENTRY pyrotechnics firm taking part in a national championship has lost out to the great British weather.

MLE Pyrotechnics, the defending champions, had taken part in the British Fireworks Champion of Champions event in Plymouth on Tuesday.

They were pitted against five other firms from across the UK who put on displays on Tuesday and Wednesday night.

However, extreme wind and rain pounded the area on Wednesday night. Although the show still went ahead, the organisers decided it ould be unfair to award a winner for this year’s event.
