PICTURES: Effigy Of Nude David Cameron With Pig’s Head Burned In Lewes Bonfire Celebrations

Revellers burned effigies of Prime Minister David Cameron, FIFA President Sepp Blatter and Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson at the self-described “bonfire capital of the world” last night.

Held every 5 November, the celebrations commemorate the failure of a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament in London, an attack that would have killed King James I and most of England’s establishment.

Bonfires and fireworks are a common sight across Britain, but the biggest and most spectacular take place in the southern town of Lewes, where revellers traditionally burn effigies of infamous people from the news.
