Leeds, UK-based Wilson Access Hire helped light up the skies on bonfire night, providing three truck mounted access platforms to throw flood lighting around the city’s biggest public bonfire.

The Wilson Access truck mounts were hired to Leeds City Council to carry banks of floodlights to illuminate Roundhay Park for the 70000 people who attended the bonfire and fireworks display.

Carl Silcox, hire desk controller at Wilson Access Hire, said: “The truck mounted platforms that we provided had maximum reach heights of 35m, 45m and 53m, enabling a vast area of the ground to be illuminated.”
