Throwing Fireworks at People!

I have been reading this morning about the outbreak of idiocy taking place within the Wednesfield North Ward, certainly on Ashmore Park. Where there are some very unthoughtful persons who are riding in cars throwing fireworks at unsuspecting people.

This is such a dangerous act. I have been reading of one guy who will be having to visit the Eye Infirmary today because the firework exploded near his face, and has damaged his eyes.

I hope that all the incidents that have taken place have been reported to the Police. There will always be someone who knows what is taking place, and by whom.

This is a dangerous practise it certainly isn’t a prank. With more days to go before November 5th – Can I appeal to residents to inform the Police if you see this happening, or you know who is behind these dangerous actions. Ring 101 and report what you know please.

I would also appeal to the Police to instigate more patrols in the evening, on the suburban estates, as well as on the Bentley Bridge Retail and Leisure Park.
