The display, scheduled for November 4, is run by the Ship Inn, Elie, but it has called a halt because the event “has grown out of all proportions over the years.”

In an update on Facebook, the hosts said: “We have had some amazing days. However it has now become so big that it has become impossible for a small pub to manage and insure, and the amount of people in a small village causes dangers that are hard to predict.”

Fireworks planned for Anstruther on November 5 are still going ahead.
