Shops Praised On No Sales

Neath Port Talbot shopkeepers have proved to be bright sparks this year when it comes to selling fireworks.

Council Trading Standards officers have been undercover testing shops throughout the county borough to ensure they don't sell fireworks to under 18's.

Council Leader Ali Thomas said, "Officers regularly visit shops to ensure they don't break the law.

Everyone that was visited asked trained child volunteers for identification, messages are hitting home, as those who break the law could face a fine of up to £5,000.

He added, "Retailers are to be congratulated as it is vital that fireworks do not end up in the hands of children."
