SUFFOLKwill be providing the spectacular finale to the Commonwealth Games.

Bramfield-based fireworks company, Shell Shock, is set to light up the Manchester sky with a huge fireworks display in the closing ceremony on Sunday evening.

And it seems the sky's no limit for the ambitious Suffolk company – famed for its magnificent fireworks shows which draw thousands into Ipswich every November.

The Evening Star can reveal the company has already spoken to organisers of the 2004 Athens Olympics about their firework needs.

Shell Shock director, Zoe Gibson, said: "We worked on the opening ceremony on Thursday which went very well indeed.

"But we have to make sure the closing ceremony is even better. It should be very spectacular.
