Portsmouth, UK - Battle of Trafalgar

As dusk falls on Portsmouth the Battle of Trafalgar is re-enacted. But rather than the British versus Spanish and French, this time it's the Red team versus the Blue. The conditions, however, are more like the Battle of the Nile than Trafalgar since Trafalgar took place during the day whereas The Battle of the Nile took place as dusk fell. The light conditions are providing Sky News and others a great technical challenge as they attempt to show Live pictures. But the finale of the spectacular fireworks display with music from various classical composers was well worth watching. Sky briefly broke away for news that the vote in the commons for the ID cards bill succeeded.
