"Fireworks being used as weapons to attack our crews and fire engines is completely unacceptable and the recklessness of this behaviour beggars belief.

“Luckily no firefighters have been injured but we feel that if this kind of behaviour continues it is only a matter of time.

"There has been some damage caused to the bodywork of a fire engine.

"As we approach the bonfire weekend we ask people to behave and respect our emergency crews who are here to help and keep the whole community safe.”
