Fireworks – help us to help you stay safe

THE council’s trading standards team regularly conduct operations to ensure local traders are not selling alcohol, cigarettes and other age-restricted products to children.

In the weeks leading up to Bonfire Night on 5th November, the team focus their attention on the sale and safe storage of fireworks and they would like the help of residents to identify local traders who may be selling fireworks to those under the age of 18 or who may be selling fireworks illegally.

If you suspect a trader may be selling fireworks to under 18s, or if you see someone selling fireworks from a market stall or van, please report your concerns to trading standards immediately. You can contact the team by emailing trading.standards@thurrock.gov.uk
