Fireworks appeal as police crackdown

Derry’s city centre neighbourhood policing team has mounted a crackdown on the supply of illegal fireworks.

Sergeant Sam Young said his Foyle City Centre team is keen to identify anyone selling illegal fireworks.

“We are aware that some fireworks are being packaged as garden fireworks and sold illegally. Unfortunately we have seen the devastating impact illegal fireworks can have, particularly on young children. The potential burn injuries alone should be enough to spur people to report such illegal activity to police.”

He urged anyone with information on illegal supply of fireworks to call on 07881 912621.
