The city skies were lit up with colour as Catherine Wheels, rockets and fountains were fired from Norwich Castle high into the air.

The event, organised by Norwich City Council, was moved an hour earlier to 7pm for the home game against Watford at Carrow Road which kicked off at 8pm.

The countdown took place at City Hall with the spectacular display, created by Pains Fireworks, lighting up the sky with ACDC, Blur, Eurythmics, The Prodigy and Foo Fighters among the musical backdrop.

Toby Anderson, seven, from Taverham, described it as an "epic" display.
