The fire service is advising revellers to attend public displays to celebrate New Year rather than letting off fireworks in their own gardens.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service posted advice on Facebook: "Organised fireworks displays are more fun, cheaper and safer than letting off your own fireworks to welcome the new year."

However, if you are planning on using fireworks for a private event, they asked people to  follow the safety tips and guidance which can be found at https://news.oxfordshire.gov.uk/new-years-eve-fireworks.../
