00:30 Final Update from the emergency Services

Lewes bonfire 2022 is drawing to a close.

Crowds have been making their way home after a busy night in Lewes, where processions and displays took place in very wet conditions.

As of midnight, most of the people treated by St John Ambulance and South East Coast Ambulance only had minor injuries.

Sussex Police have made one arrest.

It will take some time for the roads to get back to normal, with the clear-up operation underway.

Emergency services, local authorities and transport operators worked closely with bonfire societies and the local community to prepare for tonight.

Chief Superintendent Howard Hodges said: “Tonight’s bonfire celebrations have passed without significant incident, and on behalf of the multi-agency group, I’d like to pass on our thanks to the community of Lewes.”
