Flares are not fireworks

Tonight is firework night - Guy Fawkes or Bonfire night.

Sadly every year Coastguard teams are called out unnecessarily after people fire flares rather than fireworks.

It it illegal under the Merchant Shipping Act to fire a red flare if your not in distress.

Flares are for emergencies not Bonfire night.
