Gone in 50 seconds: Technical hitch mars half hour fireworks display

The display in Oban lasted barely a minute

A FIREWORKS display designed to last 20 minutes went off in less than a minute at Oban’s annual display.

The pyrotechnics, worth £6000, went off too quickly due to a technical hitch.

The company the display, Pyro1, has offered to provide another show free of charge later in the month.

The display took place at the town’s Mossfield Stadium at 19:00 on Friday.
