A 36ft effigy of Donald Trump was set alight as the Edenbridge Bonfire Society put on a spectacular show on Bonfire Night.

The steel-framed model of the Republican US presidential candidate was burned just days before he goes head-to-head with Democrat Hillary Clinton in the US election.

The model, holding the head of Clinton and dressed in shorts with images of Mexican men emblazoned on them, was stuffed with oil-soaked Newspapers, packed with fireworks and torched.

The Edenbridge Bonfire Society had admitted Trump was the overwhelming choice for this year’s celebrity effigy, beating the likes of Sir Philip Green, Sam Allardyce, Boris Johnson and Honey G.
