Fireworks sold to 15-year-old girl

A SHOP in the Eastwood and Kimberley area was caught selling fireworks to an underage teenager.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s Trading Standards team caught the shop out during an undercover borough-wide operation last week.

Two out of the five shops tested during the day failed the test and sold fireworks to the girl who is three years below the legal age limit.

The retailers will now be interviewed and action will be taken against them.
