A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Remember that fireworks are explosives, and as such should be treated with respect and only used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and the Firework Code.

“Never drink alcohol and set off fireworks and don’t throw fireworks or return to a firework once it has been lit.”
