Trading Standards tell Capital fireworks bought from unregistered suppliers could blow up when you don't want them to.

Teams in Nottinghamshire say anyone planning on having fireworks later should make sure they're from a registered seller, as ones sold on the street, in pubs or at car boots could be more dangeours and unpredictable.

Fireworks for displays, like mini rockets and bangers are banned for sale to the general public.

Councillor Alice Grice, Vice-Chair of Nottinghamshire County Council's Community Safety Committee, said:

'Fireworks are explosives that can cause a great deal of damage and harm if they are stored incorrectly, so we are checking registered premises to make sure they are not taking any unnecessary risks.'
