Poll: Should fireworks be banned?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland skies will soon be alight with fireworks displays.

With Guy Fawkes looming, the event sparks ongoing debate over the use of fireworks.

Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.

Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
