The Government remains committed to promoting the safe and considerate use of fireworks through an effective legislative framework and through non-legislative measures. We launched a public awareness campaign this October with the aim of educating people on how to buy, use, store and dispose of fireworks safely and considerately, and to ensure retailers know and understand their responsibilities when selling fireworks.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 provides the police, local authorities and other local agencies with a range of tools and powers that they can use to respond quickly and effectively to such anti-social behaviour.

No data is held on the level of anti-social behaviour in relation to the misuse of fireworks.
