STUNNING images of town landmarks have been produced thanks to the fiery imaginations of two photography students.

Sean Gibbons, 37 and friend Mike Dean, 38 have produced some crackling night-time snaps using just a chain and some burning wire wool.

The impressive shots have been taken at various locations around the town with backdrops including the Dream statue and Saints’ Langtree Park stadium.

Sean and Mike are lifelong friends having both grown up on the same street at Meadowcroft, Sutton.

“We’re both students at Unit One Photography on North Road and we took a real shine to night photography, says Sean, a self-employed gas engineer.

“I saw a wire wool spinning shot a while back and we have just been practising together when we have spare evenings.”
