A petition has been started on the UK Parliament website calling for a ban on the sale of fireworks to individuals. It reads:
Every year 1000’s of people are hurt, burnt, maimed and even lose their lives through accidents involving fireworks.
Every year people are terrorised by the misuse of fireworks.
Every year animals are hurt and traumatised by fireworks.
Ban them please.
What do you think?
Are you fed up of random fireworks being set off in your street for no discernible reason, or is your family firework party the highlight of your year?
