Council "disappointed" by fireworks display fine

Sat, 18 Feb 2017

Douglas Borough Council admits it's disappointed to have been taken to court over last year's November fireworks display.

The local authority was fined £250 by magistrates earlier this week for holding the event without a music licence.

The display had to be put back by 24 hours due to a technical problem with the fireworks.

The Council had the licence for the original time and date, but wasn't covered for the rearranged display.

In a statement, the board admits its error, but says it's regrettable that the case had to go before the court for a solely technical matter.

The sponsor of the event added that the action serves no public interest.
