They believe shocking images, like the one they have mocked up using a man's severely damaged hand, might deter buyers.

Half of those seen in hospital last year were aged 18 or under, and 80% were male.

If people need a photo on a packet to tell them that an exploding object you light is dangerous then these people have major issues.

cucumbers should only be sold if a photograph of the life-changing injuries which can result from their misuse is included on the wrapper.

If they blow enough bits off then they won't reproduce. Same thing.

Seriously what is the point? Even a halfwit who has been lobotomized would know that fireworks are explosives and explosives are rather prone to injuring people if misused.

I wonder if the increase in firework injuries is related to a reduction in enforcement of the firework buying age limit by police and local trading standards officers.
