No-one was injured but the property is home to not only to a number of  cats & dogs but also the homeowners son who is disabled. Speaking to the Ballymoney Bubble the homeowner said;

“These idiots think it’s ok to do this without even being able to see if anything or anyone was standing there at that exact time of launching them.”

As halloween approaches, the purchase and use of illegal fireworks increase and with it the anti-social aspects of their illegal and inappropriate use.
