A 'runaway Brexit rollercoaster' which depicted a frantic-looking Boris Johnson has been paraded through the streets during last night's Bonfire night festivities.
The giant sculpture featured the prime minister and Jacob Rees-Mogg, who were carried through Lewes as the town celebrated November 5.
This year's 'rollercoaster' creation is complete with broken rails and signposts pointing separately to 'deal', 'no-deal', and 'ditch'.
Rees-Mogg, the leader of the House of Commons, is shown lounging on his cart of the rollercoaster in reference to his demeanour in the emergency Brexit debate held in September.
Lewes, in East Sussex, is famous for burning effigies of controversial politicians and celebrities each year on Bonfire night.
