AMBULANCE CREWS in the East of England have praised the public’s attitude towards firework safety after a quiet Guy Fawkes night.

The East of England Ambulance Service attended just eight firework related incidents on November 5 with only five needing hospital treatment.

Ambulance service spokesman Gary Sanderson said: “First and foremost, out of the eight calls we attended, only five needed transportation to hospital, and thankfully the injuries were not serious.

“This figure shows that the public are attending professionally organised events in the towns or villages where they live.”

He added: “It is great that the public are taking heed of advice and putting safety first on fireworks night.”
