How Dangerous Are Fireworks?

Some statistics from the NHS itself.

In this special report, in video format, I look at the numbers of hospital admissions in England from the NHS’s own publicly available published figures. Firstly, for the number of admissions for “Discharge of firework”, followed by a number of other injury types across a broad spectrum of activities, hobbies and accident causes, to help put the number caused by fireworks into perspective.

This video will not be pleasant viewing to those spreading fake news on social media that fireworks are a “burden” to the NHS. These figures prove otherwise.
