Rejected petition Ban the sale of fireworks to the general public

Every year, children and adults are injured by fireworks and the fire brigade is working overtime. All animals suffer from noise,pollution and air pressure created. Many people find them scary in nearby gardens or streets.....and this for several weeks from October right through to New year.

More details

All animal rescue centres are on full alert around Halloween and other days when fireworks are traditionally fired. Local councils could ensure safe displays in safe places at reasonable times so that people and animals could be spared injuries and losses by fire and in addition have undisturbed nights
