People don't realise that it is illegal to set off fireworks onb any day except November 5th and December 31st unless you have permission from the council which means you have to inform neighbours with dogs, children or pensioners. Report offenders to the council or the police.

Sadly Pamela, I don't think this is the case if the fireworks are to be let off on private land, ie the back garden.

Unfortunately the police don't want to know neither do the council. Have tried this before when we lost a horse due to a stupid neighbour who let off professional fireworks over our yard even though I begged him not to. No one to turn to over this. Mob rule.

No point writing to Parish Council you need to write to the Environmental Health Department of the District Council.

fireworks should be restricted to organised displays only well away from any domestic properties or banned altogether. They are a nuisance, disruptive, extremely dangerous and a waste of public resource money ie fire brigade, ambulance, hospital service. If I had other explosives other than fireworks I would be arrested, fireworks are explosives and highly dangerous and should NOT be allowed to be sold to the public.

totally agree they are dangerous in the wrong hands and my family is unfortunately one the the families that know this my nan Mary Fox was killed by a firework being put through her letter box 3 years ago. I think a legal displays are amazing but everytime I hear fireworks I am brought back to that night.

Wholeheartedly agree! The ones they sell to the public now are too big. They are louder and rattle windows. X

I can tolerate the weekend before and after firework night (Fri and Sat) and the actual day. New Years Eve is to be expected but its worrying to think of the state of the people who may be setting them off at midnight. Religous festivals as we are a multi-cultural society should be tolerated. But everynight pretty much from 1st November to 1st January? Not acceptable - our 2 and 4 legged household is in turmoil!

It has been so noisy hear for well over a week and the odd night from October. I thought that 5th Nov would be an end to the fireworks but no....people still letting them off. Please ban the sale of fireworks to the public & just let them be allowed at organised displays. We can put up with 1 day of noise but not weeks of it!

The new neighbour set off about 60 metres away from my stables. They didn't inform me at the all. Stupid! my mare in foal, and 30 years old mare and other were terrifying.

I think this is brilliant, I have been to organised displays abroad that are so much better than we have here as the people all put toward it and they can afford more fireworks that way. Plus the fact that pets the country over can finally have some rest from the trauma of bonfire night. Another reason I'm all for it is that we have our ex service men and women who are traumatised by sounds of rocket fire after serving abroad.
