The popular Skinningrove bonfire has had to be re-scheduled due to adverse weather conditions.

In a post on Facebook, the organisers said: "Due to adverse weather conditions the 2016 Skinningrove bonfire will now take place on Monday, November 7.

"We hope you have a safe and enjoyable bonfire night and are able to join us on Monday as well."

The event is free but relies on public donations to keep going.
