Has the time come when we stop selling these "cheap made in China" fireworks. They have proved to be unreliable and I believe were never intended to be sold to the general public for back garden displays..

Further what has Braintree District Council done to stop the FLY posting around the sale of these fireworks every where you drive around in the district you see these posters on tress and sign posts.
