It is "unclear" whether a new date for the Preston Park firework display will be set after the event was previously cancelled.

The display, which was due to take place on Wednesday, November 2, was affected by the wind and rain which buffeted Brighton earlier in the week.

It is currently not known whether the event will be rescheduled.

Earlier in the week, a Brighton and Hove Council said that "as far as we’re aware no alternative date has been set at this stage”.

At the time, a spokesman said: “The fireworks at Preston Park due to take place this evening have been cancelled.

“Given the forecast weather conditions the safety advice from the team organising the fireworks is that they wouldn’t be able to safely fire the display in the predicted wind speeds.

“As far as we’re aware no alternative date has been set at this stage.”

Wind speeds at the time were expected to top 44mph, making the firework display unworkable due to safety concerns.

The city has also been hit with torrential rain in recent days, with surrounding areas in Sussex suffering from flooding.

Today, a council spokesman said it was "unclear" if a new date had been set. 

Bonfire Night events are due to take place across the county tomorrow.
