Fireworks are a traditional part of enjoying celebrations such as Bonfire Night or New Year but they are the cause of around a thousand serious accidents every year (source: HSE) - it should be remembered that they are dangerous explosives. The highest number of firework injuries happen at family or private parties. Over half of those injuries are to children.
The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to go to an organised event such as the Himley Bonfire.
