Virtually pointless non-fire night

Organisers of a Guy Fawkes party in Devon say safety officials have forced them into a virtual bonfire.

 

Revellers will have to make do with projected image of a bonfire on a giant screen, electric heaters and bonfire sound effects because of the mountain of paperwork needed to organise the real thing.

    The video with sound effects and KWs of heating or the real thing (paper-work could be recycled).

    The cost would be real, so which is cheaper?
