Heavy overnight rain has made conditions at the site in Wanstead Flats very soggy underfoot, said the council’s official statement.

“With the forecast of more rain during the day, the council has taken the decision to cancel at the earliest opportunity to prevent people travelling to the display.

“We apologise for the late notice but hope people will understand the reason. While it is disappointing, safety has to be our main concern. We are optimistic that we may be able to rearrange the display on another date.” Full details will be available on the council’s website at www.newham.gov.uk
