These poor children hopefully they are well on their way to recovery. These bonfires need to be stopped they are not safe!! I grew up in the country and we'd have a bonfire on Halloween but it was in the middle of a massive field at least 50 metres from anything that might remotely catch fire and if we didn't clean up after ourselves we weren't allowed one the following year. The field wasn't owned by my parents but they imposed that rule on us in support of the farmer who did and every year we had to ASK PERMISSION. If only the same logic could be applied to those living in the middle of housing estates!!!

Kids r kids. I'm not calling all kids scum did you read the story I've commented on its about people being stabbed so obviously the people at these events and the ones who engage in anti social behaviour are scum. Are you actually condoning the stuff that went on? Wise up and as for you saying their parents have wanted them to go out to get them out of their hair well they aren't very good parents then if that's true!
