I DO not know Jacqui Broadbridge, but I concur totally with her remarks (Letters, January 4) which encapsulate all that I feel about the continuance of the thunderous firework barrage.

They do cause immense problems for animals, and our dog has suffered extreme distress for many years, which means we have had to spend money in an attempt to alleviate it.

I would not now give my custom to a business that advocates year round sales of fireworks and would support a campaign to ban it
