    Tonight I saw my first firework this year.
    A lovely bright green peony burst somewhere over York.

    I said to the wife "f%$#@%^ hell, it's like a war zone" LOL

    That'll be bird scarers, the local night grouse shoot, or someone out lamping.

    Doubt it is fireworks ;)

    If it is fireworks it'll be the illegal imported bangers.
  5. Plenty last night from first dark in the Sutton Coldfield area. Went in for about 2 hours then only occasionally.

    then ...... 00:30 some moron fires a couple of big barrages.

    I think a lot of people just don't know the 11pm curfew exists...

    Im with you there tbh, its been so long since the last real public safety campaign! And as we know in a court of law you only need to be able to produce reasonable doubt.
    "Honest gov i didnt know what i was doing was wrong"
    That argument would be much harder if there was tv, online, and billboard posters everywhere!
    Reminds me of my defence as a young adult (18) charged with drunk and disorderly, in court i told the magistrates that all i was doing was learning my limits, theres been the know your limits advert campaign for years now. How does one know the limit until they find it? The courtroom gasped and i felt a little uncomfortable, but the guy behind the desk said, "thats the best, most logical argument i have ever heard for alcohol innebriation, this time i will accept your argument but if i ever see you again for the same thing then the law will come down hard" or at least words to that effect its been a long time!
  8. just had a few smaller cakes and a psck of some large double break rockets which were what i believe to be mercury rising rockets.

    lol, I can see you doing that....

    Usual bangers here last night again, but 4 big rockets fired close by too - still not a war zone,,,,

  10. “Reasonable doubt” applies to the committing of the crime, not knowledge of illegality.

    On that front it’s all “Ignorantia juris non excusat“ -
    Ignorance is no excuse.

    That’s the law anyway .... what magistrates do with it is a separate thing entirely!

    First of the season where I am, couldn’t see it but sounded like a fairly big bore cake at the other end of the village, so I sent up a couple of rockets from my selection box. Pretty sure they weren't seen................:rolleyes::p
