FIREWORKS and a light show lit up the sky last night in celebration of the opening of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge.

We asked everyone to send in their pictures of the show and here they are. Did you make it into the gallery?

The new bridge was lit up with a light show and fireworks display for residents just hours before it opens to traffic last nigh5, Friday, October 13.

Spectators watched from West Bank in Widnes and Mersey Road in Runcorn.
