Speaking to Newry Times, Inspector Andy McGowan said, “In the run up to Halloween, do not give in to temptation and buy fireworks without a licence. Not only can fireworks be extremely dangerous if used without proper safety precautions in place, but it also means the loss of your hard earned cash when your illegal fireworks are taken from you. “It is illegal to buy or use fireworks without the proper licence from the Department of Justice. If you have a licence please remember that fireworks should only ever be purchased from reputable licensed dealers, not from market stalls or individuals selling door-to-door. “These fireworks may not be approved and could be extremely dangerous. Any fireworks you have must have instructions in English to be legal. He added, “We will take action against anyone selling or using illegal fireworks, so don’t take the chance. If you have information or need advice around fireworks please call us on 101.”
