It was another fantastic occasion in the City of Culture 2013 with thousands lining the quayside for the spectacular fireworks display.

Spooks, witches, Spidermen, ghouls, pantomime horses, Little Red Riding Hoods - you name it and you could probably see it on the banks of the Foyle last night!

The fireworks display was the culmination of a busy day of events in a very busy city - and that’s just part of a full programme for the Banks of the Foyle Halloween Carnival, which continues until Sunday. Also in the city last night were the Shapeshifters Ball in the Guildhall and Chic, back at the Venue.

Police say there were 17 arrests. (DER4413PG055)
