A Suffolk town’s fireworks display has been postponed following strong winds.

The decision was made to postpone the fireworks display in Stowmarket due to strong winds sweeping the county earlier on Saturday.

Organisers announced the event would be postponed by a day and that all tickets purchased for the scheduled display would be valid on the rearranged date.

The event is now due to take place on Sunday.

The Museum of East Anglian Life said it was "gutted" to have to move the event - its most important fundraiser of the year.
