Planning and preparation could be the key to ensuring that Bonfire Night passes off safely, according to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

November 5th will see many private and public parties be held, with a large fire and fireworks being used to entertain the crowd.

Safety signs could be one way of helping to keep the audience from danger, while knowing the law concerning fireworks and picking a suitable site for a bonfire could also help.

Sheila Merrill, public health adviser at RoSPA, said: "Remember that planning in advance for fireworks parties at home is key to putting on a safe - and impressive - display."

The expert also noted that hundreds of people are injured each year by fireworks on and around Bonfire Night, with many more incidents occurring at private shows.

Organisers holding a Bonfire Night bash could use signs to keep people away from the firework area, while notices to put out sparklers and dispose of them properly are also needed.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800761417-ADNFCR
