A REGISTER of authorised firework stores has been launched by Derbyshire County Council in a bid to ensure customer safety.
Four outlets are licensed to sell fireworks all year round in Derbyshire but other fireworks retailers can only sell them from October 15 to November 10.
Cllr Kevin Parkinson, Derbyshire County Council Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: “We want to make sure that everyone has a safe and successful bonfire celebration.
“Consumers can check our register to ensure that they’re buying fireworks from an outlet which is licensed and has been safety checked. Fireworks should not be sold from vehicles, market stalls or car boot sales.
