Every year, despite excellent work by many public agencies promoting tips and advice on handling fireworks safely, hundreds of adults and children end their firework night fun with a visit to accident and emergency.
Children account for over half of all firework casualties, suffering injuries such as burnt hands or feet, eye injuries and burns to the torso.
