Police have tonight had a firework directed at them whilst dealing with a disturbance beside McDonalds in Eltham.

A group of youths causing problems at the restaurant resulted in police arriving. Whilst doing so, the firework landed metres away from officers.

Those that launched the firework ran off. Police are seeking those responsible.

    We are fast approaching the time of the year where low level explosive devices are sold freely, in memoriam of a failed plot to kill King James and the Upper House. I think any lesson learned from the event is long lost and the things should be banned to the public entirely. The police have enough to worry about without some punks trying to burn or blind them, to say nothing of the inevitable ones launched at windows.
