The British Airways i360 held a fireworks and light show last night (Saturday 13 August) to celebrate the opening of Brighton’s latest tourist attraction.
The event had been due to take place when the seafront observation tower opened just over a week earlier but it had to be postponed because of high winds.
Some had tickets to see the display from the pod of the i360 while many more watched from the beach when the show got under way at about 10pm.
Here is a selection of pictures including some from Twitter focusing on the skeletal remains of the West Pier.
