Title: Pallets & Passion

Welshampton's bonfire festival has been getting bigger and better every year - but this is no ordinary pile of pallets and roman rockets - this is a spectacle!

Each year villagers choose what shape their bonfire should take. This year in celebration of the Battle of Trafalgar they decided to build a ship - and what a ship! Over 600 pallets went into this battleship which stood at around 40 feet high.

Ian talks about all the trials, tribulations and team work which goes into making this unusual bonfire event such a success.
