Thousands of spectators have flocked to Lewes for its annual bonfire night extravaganza.

More than 50,000 people are estimated to be attending with processions already winding their way through the streets.

Despite efforts to keep the celebration for Lewes residents only visitors have arrived from as far away as Cardiff, Bedford and Hertfordshire.

The closely-guarded identities of effigies to be burnt later have started to leak out, including Donald Duck sitting on top of a barrel of BP oil.

So far there has been one arrest, for drink driving and one woman was treated for an injured eye.
