Primary schoolchildren have been using their artistic talents to help to promote fireworks safety.

More than 600 entered a poster competition, run by Islington Council, and 10-year-old Amy Musgrave, form King Henry’s Walk Play and Youth Project, came up with the winning design.

The poster will be used in Islington to highlight the council’s fireworks safety campaign to keep people safe over Halloween and Bonfire Night.

This year there will once again be a number of small displays across the borough, 14 years after the last large Bonfire Night event in Highbury Fields.
