Double paralympic gold medallist Hannah Cockroft lit the Elland Round Table bonfire on Saturday night.

The 20-year-old of Mount Tabor, Halifax, was among a crowd estimated at up to 8,000 at Elland Recreation Ground.

Thousands of families across the district braved the cold to attend bonfire events over the weekend.

Our photographers have been out and about capturing fantastic pictures of people and spectacular displays.
