Dangerous fireworks to look out for

Dangerous Bangers from Poland
A warning note from Sergeant Joyce

These are the newest bangers that we need to keep an eye out for.

They originate from Poland made by a company called Jasper and are called  'TAPIRKI'

They are poorly constructed, with a metal based composition which is exposed at both ends. They have no labelling on the actual bangers.

Apparently they are readily available around the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester. They are selling for around £2 per pack and contain 10 bangers in each pack. A sleeve of 10 packets is selling for £10 so that’s a 100 bangers for £10

I would suggest they are highly dangerous and such poor construction and amount of composite could cause serious injury with a possibility of loss of digits.

Although we have not seen huge numbers yet on Merseyside they are here and I anticipate that they will be sold illegally.

In the first instance Phone 101  and request the FIRST TEAM be informed or contact Crimestoppers 0800 555 111 to report

Enjoy Halloween and Firework Season safely!
