A white van selling fireworks to children has been spotted on several Preston estates.

Trading standards posted on its Facebook page Scambuster Stan that this has led to several reports of anti-social behaviour involving fireworks.

The post also says: “If you see anyone selling fireworks to underage people, please report it to the police on 101, or to me at tsscams@lancashire.gov.uk.

“Lets stay safe on the build up to Bonfire Night.”

The law says it is illegal to buy ‘adult’ fireworks if you’re under 18-years-old.
