Jubilation at world's biggest Catherine Wheel is fired in Mqabba

There was jubilation in Mqabba today as fireworks enthusiasts from Our Lady of the Lilies fireworks factory lit the world's biggest Catherine Wheel and laid claim to a Guinness world record.

Suffarelli were let off and there was applause by thousands of onlookers as the giant, fiery wheel started turning. Its dimensions are well above the 85ft diameter of the previous record holder.

The success ended a year of frustration after last year's attempt had to be called off because of damage caused by strong winds.
