A LABOUR MP has welcomed £80 on- the-spot fines for yobs who step out of line with fireworks.
Police will issue fixed penalty notices to anyone causing disorder.
Colne Valley MP Kali Mountford said she regularly received letters about the misuse of fireworks.
"I've heard of cases where families have been disturbed late at night, children have been threatened by fireworks or elderly relatives felt trapped inside their homes."
In a horrifying case last year in Ms Mountford's constituency, a teenager blew up a Yorkshire terrier with a firework after it had been hit by a car.
