Telegraph & Argus reporter Rowan Newman - along with a huge crowd - was there to witness the phenomenal 13-minute display coming from the top of the NCP car park in Hall Ings.

Organised by the Bradford Business Improvement District, the spectacle was organised to coincide with the Christmas lights switch on.

Some rockets reached up to 750ft high during the display which began at 7pm.

Rowan captured the sensational ending of the show on the video below.
