Manchester Mad For Fireworks!
RECORD numbers of people are expected to attend Manchester council's organised firework displays this year.
Last year, more than 100,000 people flocked to parks around the city for the events and organisers are expecting, even more, this year.
Deputy council leader Jim Battle said: "The council, police and fire service have been working closely with our local communities to make sure the firework celebrations pass as smoothly as possible. "
Greater Manchester Police has launched a safety campaign along with Greater Manchester Fire Service, trading standards officers and the Health and Safety Executive.
Chief Superintendent Jon Rush, in charge of the campaign, said: "Bonfire Night can be a lot of fun for many people but it can also be distressing and intimidate for some of our residents.
"We don't want to spoil anyone's fun, we just want to raise awareness of the consequences of anti-social behaviour. My advice for a safe and enjoyable Bonfire Night is to respect others, use fireworks responsibly and attend an organised event."
