I wish fireworks could be only set off on 5th November, then at least animals wouldn't have suffer it for over a week, they don't know it's just temporary, it would be even better if it was organised bonfires only.

Firefighters responding to an out-of-control bonfire have been attacked by a gang of 40 young people throwing fireworks.
Crews were called to Great Norbury Street in Hyde, Greater Manchester, on Tuesday when the group launched the fireworks in their direction.
Members of the fire service were also targeted on Bolton Street in Oldham.

"Attacks like these are not acceptable," Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service (GMFRS) said.
It added it had responded to 200 incidents between 17:00 and 22:25 GMT on Bonfire Night.

They were at it in the ASDA car park in Harpurhey last night throwing fireworks, and there's cop shop across the road, no fear of the fuzz, I suppose Karney was in town getting Christmas ready, while the 'poor disenfranchised yoofs' were making people's lives a misery.

Perhaps a sheriff is needed to round them up, split them up and send them out to help the farmers O0
