VIDEO: Dundee hosts east coast’s largest fireworks displays

Tens of thousands of people attended Dundee’s official Bonfire Night displays on Saturday.

The spectacular displays – at Baxter Park and Lochee Park – were also watched by hundreds of spectators from vantage points across the city and at the Tay Road Bridge car park in Fife.

The Baxter Park display was the largest to take place on the east coast after high winds forced the cancellation of displays in Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

This year’s events were given a Disney theme with music from Frozen and Pirates of the Caribbean accompanying the fireworks displays.

Both Dundee events began with a Tay FM roadshow before the bonfires were lit at 6.15.

The crowd even witnessed a, fortunately successful, marriage proposal on the roadshow stage before the  25-minute long fireworks displays then began at 7pm.

Scottish Fire and Rescue said the rest of Bonfire Night passed quietly in Dundee on what is traditionally the busiest night of the year.

Fire crews were called to deal with a number of bonfires but in many other parts of Scotland firefighters came under attack as they attended blazes.

Across Scotland, firefighters responded to 970 incidents, including 326 bonfires.

However, crews came under attack from stone throwing youths while responsive to a call in Ardrossan.

Fireworks were also aimed at appliances in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Clydebank and Greenock.

SFRS Assistant Chief Officer (ACO) Lewis Ramsay, said: “Attacks on emergency responders are completely unacceptable and I am sure the public would be outraged by incidents where their firefighters have been targeted while working to protect people and property.

“Those responsible should know that the authorities take these criminal actions extremely seriously and we will work closely with police to ensure they are identified and held to account.

“We will continue our efforts to bring about a reduction in these dangerous actions by a small number of individuals.

“As an organisation, we have a duty of care towards our employees and we are committed to protecting our frontline staff who work in challenging circumstances to make communities safer.”

ACO Ramsay added: “Our crews responded to 970 incidents on Bonfire Night and over 300 bonfires.

“Bonfire Night is typically the service’s busiest night of the year, but in addition to numerous bonfires, firefighters continue to response to the full range of emergencies we face on a daily basis.”
