Safety experts use car to highlight boot sale fireworks danger

Pyrotechnic experts have set off fireworks inside a Vauxhall Corsa to demonstrate the potential dangers of buying products from sellers at car boot sales.

The demonstration, which took place in Waddington, near Lincoln, is part of a clampdown by Lincolnshire Trading Standards.

Tim Dawson, from the county council, said: "We always get intelligence about people selling illegal fireworks, but unfortunately it's often very late in the season.

"What we want people to do is contact us earlier."
