The firework display at the Leigh Christmas Lights switch-on has been cancelled because of the weather.

The private company responsible said the wind was too strong and blowing in the wrong direction.

Therefore the display scheduled for tonight (Thursday) has been called off.

However, the lights switch-on by the Mayor, Coun Myra Whiteside and Father Christmas, will still go-ahead, with a family fun fair and other events taking place.

And BBC6Music presenter Shaun Keaveny has confirmed he will be at the event as a special guest.
