This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government

Rejected petition Ban the sale of fireworks to the public and hold local Council events instead.

Every year our Emergency Services have to deal with the following:

POLICE - Arrests, Reports.
AMBULANCE - injuries

It's time to ban the sale of these explosives to the public and have only Council run events instead.

More details

Like it or not, Fireworks get into the wrong hands far too easily. They are used to fire at people and posted through people's letter boxes.
The damage caused by fireworks to people and property is just too much to deal with.
YouTube has many videos showing fireworks being used in an illegal way.
It's time these were banned from public sale.
