West Dorset can look forward to an explosive night of fireworks.

Despite today’s weather, conditions are expected to improve in some areas by this evening. 

Charmouth’s firework display has been cancelled due to poor weather. 

Bridport Round Table's display is still due to go ahead at the leisure centre tonight. The event raises vital funds for local causes every year.

Organiser Simon Wakely said: "The Round Table has been putting on this event for years and years and it's a really good family-friendly event with a great atmosphere.

"We would encourage people to come along as all of the money collected will go back to local causes. Any money we raise will go to the local community - please come along and support it and appreciate it."

The event will offer a barbecue, bar and fair rides

The gates to the event will open at 7pm with a firework display at 8pm.

Entrance costs £4 for those aged 12 and above.

Lyme Regis' firework display is also going ahead as planned at 6.30pm.
