Man allergic to fireworks takes cover

a few years after the big bang

The 33-year-old is believed to be the only person in Britain who has hyperekplexia - a condition commonly known as startle disease.

A loud bang means his body goes rigid and he falls to the ground.

'It can be very dangerous. I dread Bonfire Night,' said Mr Latham, of Great Harwood, Lincolnshire.
