When:

Now

Where:

Around the world

What:

Children were taking risks on fireworks and messing with some that are illegal. Firefights said that fireworks are dangerous because of the sudden explosion. Children under 18 (United Kingdom) were not allowed to buy fireworks.

Why:

-They would be breaking the laws.

- A firefight said that in the year 2007, above 500 people (under the age 16) were hurt by taking risks with the fireworks.

- The fireworks can explode as quick as lightning as soon as they're lightened.

- If you are older than 16 and have a special license, then you can only buy any kind of fireworks in Northern Ireland.
