Fireworks campaigner wants details of distressed animals
Tuesday 13th November 2012, 1:00PM GMT.
A CAMPAIGNER for tighter firework regulations is hoping pictures and stories of distressed animals will make politicians take note of her cause.
Suzy Rose last week launched a petition for firework displays to be licensed by the parish and a list made available including the time, location and duration of them.
She also wants displays to be restricted to two evenings a year – 5 November and the nearest Saturday – with displays at other times authorised by the parish with one month’s notice.
Her calls follow what she described as ‘the worst year ever’ for people letting off fireworks at unexpected times and days of the year.
Mrs Rose has asked supporters to send their pictures and stories of animals and people who have been affected by firework displays.
