The general sale of fireworks to members of the public has come under scrutiny once again after videos emerged on social media of officers being attacked with fireworks.
In the first video, a West Midlands Police car comes under attack by several people who were all armed with fireworks.
We understand that the police had been called to the area by concerned residents after youths were seen firing fireworks at members of the public.
But when the police arrived on the scene, they immediately came under attack, forcing them to have to retreat.
In another shocking video, a male throws a firework into a police car with the driver still inside.
The officer manages to escape from the vehicle just in time.
In the third video, Met Police officers were called to deal with unruly groups of teenagers.
When they arrived on the scene, one male can be seen to light a firework and aim it directly at the police officers.
The youth then discharges the firework at the police officer before running from the scene.
It is unclear as to whether or not any officers were injured following the incidents.
