Illegal Fireworks Stash
More than a thousand fireworks have been seized in County Fermanagh in the last 48 hours.
On Monday, police in Enniskillen seized rockets, bangers and other fireworks, including display ones.
On Tuesday night more than 600 fireworks, including 450 illegal Black Cat bangers were seized in Irvinestown.
Inspector Roy Robinson said: “Each year, fireworks injure numerous individuals and these finds are a positive result.
“In the wrong hands and used indiscriminately, these fireworks could undoubtedly have had the potential to cause serious injury,” he added.
“The illegal use of fireworks is not only a dangerous activity, but is a type of behaviour that causes nuisance and distress to many people in our community.”
