Illegal Use Of Fireworks In A Public Place

Illegal Use Of Fireworks In A Public Place

Northamptonshire Police and the Northampton Anti Social Behaviour Unit have been investigating reports of anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood and the purpose of this reminder is to ensure that you are fully informed of the situation.

Over recent weeks, we've seen a number of complaints following the misuse of fireworks in a public place (as often happens at this time of year) but sadly one incident involved an allegation of a firework hitting a member of the public and a second involved an allegation of assault when a member of the public attempted to stop such use due to safety concerns. More »

We respectfully remind you that it is a criminal offence to set off or throw fireworks (including sparklers) in the street or other public place regardless of the special occasion. You can be fined up to £5,000 and imprisoned for up to 6 months for using fireworks illegally.

All public area use of fireworks MUST be permitted, in writing, by Northampton Borough Council's Licensing Department prior to use. Further information can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/fireworks-the-law

We are sending you this message to make you aware of the potential consequences of this form of anti-social behaviour and to inform you that Northampton Borough Council and Northamptonshire Police are committed to ensuring that the community at large are not subject to anti-social behaviour causing them alarm and distress.

HM Revenue and Customs Alert

HM Revenue and Customs Alert

What you need to know
Action Fraud has experienced an increase in the reporting of malicious calls, voicemails, text messages or emails to members of the public purporting to be from HMRC.

The fraudsters state that as a result of their non-payment of tax or other duty, the victim is liable to prosecution or other legal proceedings such as repossession of belongings to settle the balance but can avoid this by arranging for payment to be made immediately by method such as bank transfer or by iTunes gift cards. More »

If the victim is hesitant or refuses to comply, the suspect makes a threat such as immediate arrest, bailiffs or in cases where the victim appears to be of overseas origin; deportation.

Often, the period for which the tax is allegedly due is distant enough to guarantee the victim will have little, if any, paperwork or ability to verify the claims. Once the money is paid the suspects sever all contact.

It is vital that the public exercise caution when receiving messages or telephone calls of this nature.

What you need to do
Always question unsolicited requests for your personal or financial information. Just because someone knows your basic details (such as your name and contact details), it doesn't mean they are genuine. Instead, contact the company directly using trusted methods such as a known email address or phone number.

Listen to your instincts. If something feels wrong then it is usually right to question it. No genuine organisation will ask you to pay taxes, bills or fees using iTunes Gift Cards, or any other type of voucher.

Don't be rushed or pressured into making a decision. Under no circumstances would a genuine bank or some other trusted organisation force you to make a financial transaction on the spot.

Report Phishing attempts. If you receive a call, text or email of this nature and have not lost money, report this as a phishing attempt to Action Fraud.
