Organised firework displays safer than back garden bonfire night events says fire safety chief

ORGANISED firework displays are safer than back garden events says Phil Martin, community safety manager with Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service.

He urges people to attend local bonfire night displays and adds: “The majority of accidents happened at private parties. If you do hold your own, make sure you follow the firework code, which can be found on our website.”
