Back garden fireworks safety
Fireworks night 2020 is set to be very different to normal, with the majority of organised fireworks being cancelled due to Covid and social distancing.
This means more parents may be doing their own displays at home. But if they buy the wrong category of fireworks, they could be putting their family in danger.
Did you know, fireworks are split into categories?
So it’s really important to know what you are buying. It’s easy to be lured in by heavily-discounted fireworks. But no family wants to find themselves standing too close to a category 3 or 4 firework!
