Over the Bank Holiday weekend, many residents of Wrexham were once again ‘treated’ to a number of impromptu firework displays.
For the past week a number of residents in Wrexham have been in touch regarding fireworks being let off in their area. This has been ongoing since the early hours of last Wednesday morning.
It is not known exactly where the fireworks are being let off, however a number of people from Kingsley Circle, Caia Park, Rhosddu and Hightown have been in touch to say they have heard the fireworks going near their homes. Even people in Pandy and Little Acton have said they have heard them from their houses!
Over the weekend we were told that the fireworks were largely being let off around Maesgwyn and Little Acton, with people taking to social media to vent their frustration at the ongoing display.
Cassie told us: “Fireworks going off again tonight loads of dogs by Maesgwyn going mad because of the load bangs”, while Rachael said: “Fireworks in Acton tonight, suppose they didn’t want to leave us out.”
Others saw the lighter side of another night of fireworks with Graham Lloyd saying: “You can watch from my garden for free, no marshmallows though. #EverydaysNov5th.” and Matt tweeting us to say: “Feeling a bit left out up in Tanyfron area.”
However last night was one of the first nights in a week where fireworks had not been let off.
Last Wednesday Wrexham.com reported that thousands of pounds worth of fireworks were stolen from storage containers on the Wrexham Industrial Estate.
In a message posted on Facebook, Bright Sparks are appealing for information after thousands of pounds worth of fireworks were stolen. It is understood that at least six containers were broken into and a quantity of fireworks was taken from one container, but it is not clear yet what, if anything, was stolen from the other containers.
On Wednesday April 30th PCSO Hodges tweeted to say that two PCSO’s were is Rhosddu responding to reports of fireworks in the area. PCSO Hodges later tweeted to say: “We’re making our way to a specific address given regarding fireworks in the town.”
Despite fireworks being heard in many locations across Wrexham, there appears to be no answer or idea as to where the fireworks are coming from.
A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: “There is no update as such, however investigations are ongoing.
“We urge anyone with any information to call 101.”
