Over the last few weeks since Guy Fawkes’ I have had several complaints come through about fireworks and the poor behaviour of some towards them.
This is an old story that just never goes away. I remember when I was young people were using fireworks to deliberately harm animals, so the authorities banned certain fireworks. This year sadly I see the trend has continued with multiple complaints of people in vehicles shooting fireworks at other motorists, a petrol station forecourt and at farm animals.
One poster on a grapevine type page stated that police don’t take these reports seriously. I absolutely refute that. If the person has information with leads that can be followed up I will be happy to make some enquiries. There are a number of offences that can be prosecuted.
