Crackdown on firework yobs

POLICE have warned that anti-social behaviour involving fireworks and bonfires will not be tolerated and action will be taken against yobs causing disorder.

The strong message comes from Northumbria Police who have thrown their support behind Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service’s 2011 bonfire and fireworks campaign.

The initiative is to encourage everyone to have a safe and enjoyable bonfire night with the aim of preventing deaths and reducing the number of injuries which are caused each year by bonfires and fireworks.
