Police crack down on firework bomb makers
Friday 28 September 2012
A special police task force set up to track down people who make firework bombs has launched a interactive map showing the location of 130 people who have filmed the explosions and placed them on internet.
Police hope the production of the map, which includes links to the original film, will help members of the public identify the bomb makers.
In addition, experts will track down websites featuring the explosions and warn the makers to remove their films.
Among the bomb makers currently on the police map are Lucky Star, who uses fireworks combined with cans of deodorant, and Flexebill, who uses fireworks, flour and petrol to create an explosion.
The task force is also to put more effort into tracking down illegal fireworks ahead of the New Year celebrations, Nos television reported.
