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!”
