OFFICERS will come down hard on individuals who choose to use fireworks to terrorise people and make their lives a misery, according to the county's top cop.
Speaking on her recent podcast, chief constable of Cambridgeshire police, Julie Spence issued a warning to people who use fireworks in an unsafe manner.
She said: "Sadly, the minority (of people) continue to see the days around November 5 as an opportunity to use fireworks to make life a misery for others. Regulations concerning the sale of fireworks are much tougher than they once were, but somehow they still find their ways into the hands of people who think that using them to terrorise is amusing.
"It isn't and they are anything but funny. If you're thinking of letting off what can be highly dangerous explosives where you shouldn't - don't. My officers will come down hard on anyone caught doing so."
