Fireworks can still be heard across Ipswich a week after bonfire night. Should they have stopped by now?
Fireworks could be heard in the town centre shortly after 8pm on Sunday night.
Ipswich Town legend Russell Osman took to Twitter this weekend to express his anger. He wrote: “Why fireworks a week before and a week after the 5th (of November), 2 scary weeks for the dogs etc.”
Twitter user Becky Laird replied: “Going off here in Rotherham too. Save them for New Year folks!”
According to government laws, fireworks must not be let off between 11pm on 7am except for designated days such as Bonfire Night.
The government states: “The law says you must not set off or throw fireworks (including sparklers) in the street or other public places.
“You must not set off fireworks between 11pm and 7am, except for
• Bonfire Night, when the cut off is midnight
• New Year’s Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year, when the cut off is 1am.”
