Fireworks mistakenly set off all at once


In the world of November 5th fails, Guy Fawkes is king.

But slow clap in a new prince, in West Scotland. The Oban fireworks display was set to last an epic 30 minutes of whiz-bang entertainment.

But one overzealous pyrotechnician set them all off at once, splurging every single rocket over a 60 second period. After the short display, Councillor Roddie McCuish apologised to the crowd of hundreds: "I have some terrible news – the fireworks have all gone off at once."
