Campaigners want just two nights for firework displays
Thursday 8th November 2012, 1:00PM GMT.
A CAMPAIGN has been launched for tighter regulation of fireworks.
St Peter’s resident Suzy Rose argues that people with domestic pets and livestock dread the approach of 5 November.
‘This year has been particularly bad with fireworks being set off at all hours of the day and night from the 2 November onwards,’ she said.
‘Pets and livestock are terrified by fireworks, some smaller children too.
‘We are not killjoys suggesting they should be banned, but if we are going to tranquilise our animals and calm our children to cope with this we cannot do it on many, many consecutive nights.’
