Spectators gather around to view the firework display.

Parents were asked to ensure children had contact details with them in case of separation, and for people to bring torches to ensure safety in the dark.

Locals went to social media to express their opinions on the event, with one user posting: “Well done to Amble Town Council for the fantastic fireworks to celebrate the Queen’s birthday. They were amazing.”

Another commented: “An excellent display. Great music.”

Vicki Smith, Amble town council’s town clerk, said: “As part of the Town's celebrations for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee, Amble Town Council organised a firework display held on her birthday, 21st Amble 2022.

“The display on the Braid was orchestrated to suitably patriotic music and very well attended by residents and visitors to the town as well as being seen from over a much wider area.

She added: "This was the second town event - the first being the planting of over 800 'whips' to mature into large shrubs and trees as Her Majesty requested.

“Amble Town Council would like to thank all who were involved in making these events so successful and are looking forward to the next event to be held on the Jubilee Weekend.”
