A damp squib...

Sidmouth certainly celebrated the Tour of Britain cycle race in style – many congratulations to all involved.

However I was rather miffed to find the esplanade curiously quiet on Thursday night when we arrived in time to see the firework display.

This was advertised on the official programme to start at 10.30pm.

After chatting to some other small groups of people who were also waiting in anticipation, we were informed that the firework display had long gone and we had missed it.

We were left feeling like damp squibs!
