Shocking video of damage illegal firework damage

A video highlighting the dangers of playing with fireworks has been released by Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service as they go on sale ahead of Bonfire Night.

Part of the annual Treacle campaign - which is launched this week - it shows the devastating effects an illegal firework can have when it explodes in a child’s hand.

It comes a year after an onion bomb detonated in the face of a 10-year-old boy in Salford leaving him with serious burns and facial injuries.

The service is also launching a amnesty today and will dispose of fireworks in a safe way.
