Clydebank police have reminded the community about the law over fireworks as bonfire season approaches.

Sergeant Colin MacDonald said they wanted to particularly remind young people it is an offence for anyone under the age of 18 to have fireworks or pyrotechnic devices.

He told the Post: “This age limit is in place for everyone’s safety and officers from Police Scotland will enforce it.

“We urge the community to attend organised displays to avoid any safety risk.

“We also encourage residents to report any issues of anti-social behaviour involving fireworks and to inform police if they observe person they believe to be under 18 to be buying or attempting to buy fireworks.

“We have Operation Moonbeam put in place force-wide to address these issues. Police Scotland will be cooperating with West Dunbartonshire Council in the removal of any unsafe bonfires.”

Anyone with concerns is asked to contact Clydebank police on 101, or 999 in an emergency.
