Should the sale of fireworks be banned to the public?

Monday November 12 2018

CALLS to stiffen up licensing checks on businesses selling fireworks have been made after youths were blamed for a series of attacks on vehicles over the bonfire period including once which destroyed a pensioner’s car.

According to official figures, 34 deliberate fires were started between October 25 and November 6 in the town just one more than the previous year’s statistics although call-outs relating to firework misuse were not available.

Officers investigating a fire involving 83-year-old Rita Poole’s Volkswagen Polo on Engine Lane, Shafton, in the early hours of October 27 believe a firework sparked flames which gutted the vehicle.

Do you think the sale of fireworks to the public should be banned?
