Meg issues tough warning to firework yobs

Thursday, October 14, 2004

As from 11th October the Police have been given new powers to combat the misuse of fireworks. On the spot £80 fines can now be issued by the police to anyone breaking the new laws.

 

Meg Munn MP said,

 

“I have been campaigning for legislation to combat the anti-social use of fireworks. I believe that these penalty fines will really help us get tough on those who misuse fireworks and make people’s lives a misery”.

 

“Over the past year the Government has brought in new laws to get tough on the misuse of fireworks including a curfew, new possession offences and a noise limit. Fixed penalty fines demonstrate how seriously we view this issue.”

 

“My message to those who may be tempted to misuse fireworks is that these new powers will be used against you and anyone who makes life a misery for our communities. Once a person is caught he or she will be fined £80, if they refuse top pay, then the fine is increased to £120 and will face court action”.

 

There are three firework offences for which a Penalty Notice for Disorder can now be issued and which the public need to be aware;

  • Anyone under 18 found in possession of an adult firework (any firework except for a cap, cracker snap, novelty matches, party poppers, serpents, throw downs and sparklers) in a public place.
  • Anyone found in possession of a category 4 (consumer display fireworks) firework by any member of the public unless authorised.
  • And finally the use of an adult firework between the hours of 11pm and 7am (with the exception of 5 November, 31 December, Chinese New Year and Diwalli).
