A North Yorkshire park has been lit up by flaming firepots, torches and lanterns as part of Harrogate International Festivals 50th birthday.

French company Carabosse has created a "Fire Garden" by filling the spa town's Grade II-listed Valley Gardens with cast-iron sculptures.

The event, co-commissioned by Yorkshire Festival and Harrogate Borough Council, runs until Saturday.

Harrogate International Festivals described it as "something special".

Chief executive Sharon Canavar said: "We wanted to do something for Harrogate and the wider north that was really accessible - a place that people come to regularly and see it in a different light.

"It covers acres and acres, around every nook and cranny."
