Whizz kids are top of the class when it comes to Bonfire safety

Youngsters from schools across Rotherham have shown that they are flying high when it comes to firework safety.

Officers have been visiting primary schools across the borough to help teach pupils how to stay safe in the run up to Bonfire Night.

The talks, which are part of Operation Dark Nights, feature a quiz, facts about fireworks and the dangers of being around fire.

Police Community Support Officer Paul Gray said: “We have been extremely impressed by the knowledge of the young people and how seriously they are taking fire safety.

“The whole aim of these talks is to keep as many people as possible safe over the coming weeks as it’s a time to enjoy and spend time with your family.”

Operation Dark Nights is a force-wide campaign providing important safety advice and reassurance to the public over the next four weeks.
