A WARNING has been issued to parents after reports of youths throwing fireworks at cars.

Blackburn with Darwen Police posted on the Facebook page about incidents in Bangor Street and Troy Street.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: "We have received numerous reports of youths throwing fireworks in the area and at passing cars.

"Officers have attended and on arrival, youths are seeing police and rather than having a chat, are currently running away from us.

"Please know what your children are doing and give them some education about the danger fireworks can cause to themselves and others.

"If anybody has any idea of where these youths may be purchasing their fireworks, please let us know."
