Lambeth Council Cancels Bonfire Night

After mismanaging the sale of tickets to last year's Brockwell Park firework display, which left more than 20,000 tickets unsold, Lambeth Council has given up. The Council has cancelled this year's display in Brockwell Park, saying that it can no longer afford the event. 

Conservative activist Michael Johnson said, "Lambeth is one of the least efficient councils in the country. Neighbouring boroughs that spend their money more wisely are not axing firework displays in their public spaces."
