Following an operation by Police Scotland and local Trading Standards, hundreds of fireworks were seized this week from a shop in Glasgow where they were being sold illegally. The CTSI advise that, if you are buying fireworks, you should make sure they have the CE mark, come with instructions and are labelled correctly. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Scottish Government are reminding people to stay safe tonight and to consider others when using fireworks. Find advice on enjoying fireworks and bonfires safely on their website.
