Hosts of firework displays have been cancelled or rearranged due to the bad weather.

A weather warning for rain has been issued by the Met Office, covering parts of Dorset, and the area is braced for yet more torrential downpours.

It comes off the back of Storm Ciarán which hit the country on Wednesday night, leaving much of the area flooded and putting events on hold.

Some displays still look to remain on this weekend despite the warnings. 

Here are the current list of venues hosting fireworks displays in Dorset across the weekend:

Dorchester Rugby Club Fireworks:

The Pymore Inn Fireworks, due to take place on Sunday, November 5 has been cancelled. A statement from the event on Facebook said: “Sadly we have taken the decision to cancel the bonfire event on Sunday 5th - the garden is very waterlogged and we're not sure we can use even our hospitality skills to make it a fun and family friendly event when you are likely to be up to your ankles in mud.”

Dewlish Village Fireworks:

The Dewlish Village Fireworks, due to be held at Patronage Farm has been cancelled due to the fields ‘already being sodden’ and the forecast showing even more rain for the next two weeks.
