SIR - We have reached the stage where there is an urgent need to ban the sale of fireworks and only have organised events. The events on the weekend and especially November 5 highlight the need for all MPs in Bradford to get together to call for a ban in Parliament.

I’m certain that there would be overwhelming support for this across all parties-unfortunately the few have ruined it for the many but when it endangers life enough is enough!
