Not in corner shops and newsies and stuff, no.

Firework specialists sell them all year round though, as it's not just on bonfire night people light fireworks!

Anyway, no, they shouldn't be banned for public sale, they have an age restriction on them and that's just fine. Obviously not everyone over 18 has a brain, though, but that's just human nature.

i knew they weren't in general shops, but the way jamie worded it sounded a bit like they were illegal apart from certain months of the year. i was wondering what people did if they really fancied some fireworks fun in april or something.

personally, I love fireworks but I do prefer them at proper displays rather than when my dads arsing around with them in the front garden  :-\

Yeah I totally agree. I think there should be government trained people at every intersection too to hold your hand while you cross the street because some people cross the street incorrectly and get hit by cars. There should also be a St. Johns Ambulance at every intersection as well.

hes part right part wrong:

There have been important changes to the laws relating to fireworks:

    * It is now an offence for anyone under 18 to possess fireworks in a public place.
    * It is now an offence to use fireworks between 11.00pm and 7.00am.

There are, however, extensions for the following celebrations:

    * 5th November - to 12.00 midnight
    * Diwali - to 1.00am
    * New Year - to 1.00am on 1st January
    * Chinese New Year - to 1.00am on the following day

This curfew applies to all places, including gardens and private land.
These requirements arise from the Firework Regulations 2004 and are enforced by the Police.

There is a penalty of up to 5000 or 6 months in prison. On the spot fines can also be issued for breach of the regulations.

im unsure on this one. i mean you always get dickheads who blow up cats and kids and stuff with them, and i live near a bike track where chavs let off stupid 10p rockets from about mid september til december practically at 2am. also a couple of little fireworks in your back garden is nowhere near as good as the big organised displays, they have a way better atmosphere with everyone stood together huddled up in scarves and gloves and stuff

I'm with Darwin on this one. If they're too stupid to use fireworks they can suffer the consequences.

Thats not really the only problem though, you get people tying fireworks to kids and cats and dogs etc. Someone in Nunthorpe put some bangers in my neighbours cats collar and killed it, sick as fuck. I dont think they should be banned but I think the controls on them should be much more stringent

Dont give 'em ideas

Plus there is a (retarded) campaign to ban chip pan sales due to the accidents involving them (I believe cleveland fire brigade are one of the biggest supporters of this)

Personally I think they should be banned. They're alright at displays but not for public use.

There was a story on BBC Tees where some woman got stabbed for trying to stop some youths from strapping a firework to a dog. Sick fucks.

Thats so awful. I just dont get why people do it and get fun from hurting something
I think they should be banned to the public. They are great at big displays and such but its when they get into the wrong hands, thats when the trouble starts. I remember one year, some youths chucked on through an old ladies letter box.. not nice
