Fireworks must not be set off by a private individual between 11pm and 7am except for certain nights of the year.

Unless retailers possess a special licence they may only sell fireworks from 15 October to 10 November and 26 to 31 December.

On Animal Welfare, it is an offence under The Animal Welfare Act 2006 to cause any unnecessary suffering to a captive or domestic animal.
