so a TV screen will show video of a bonfire at the event, this is to commentate the failed attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament by Guy Fawkes in 1604, every year hundreds of thousands of families in the UK go to bonfire nights to see the burning of the 'Guy' and watch firework displays, the health and safety officials acted swiftly to stop a problem which occurred 5 years ago when some one threw a firework into the bonfire,
organisers at Ilfracombe Rugby Club say they were put off having the real thing by the 'mountain' of paperwork and regulations set by council bosses, officials at the authority said that to have a bonfire they would require five qualified fire marshals and metal barricades to keep onlookers at a safe distance,
Amy Collins, 26, said: 'The whole point of Guy Fawkes night is to watch and smell a real bonfire. I doubt Guy Fawkes would have been able to blow up Parliament with virtual gunpowder.' Zoe Payne, 31, added: 'If I want to watch TV I'll stay in and watch EastEnders.'
yes it has taken 5 long years for health and safety to think this one out, what a load of killjoys there must be in Devon's health and safety executive.
