Many people will be celebrating bonfire night this week.
It's tradition to set off fireworks to mark the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 when Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament.
However, with many celebrations for Diwali still ongoing and bonfire night fast approaching, there are a few rules and regulations you should be aware of if you're planning to set off fireworks in your back garden.
On a normal day, it is against the law to set off fireworks between the hours of 11pm and 7am, however, for your celebrations this week, the rules are slightly different.
On November 5, which this year falls on Saturday, you are allowed to set off fireworks until midnight. Any other day this week however, you must adhere to the rule of an 11pm cut off. These rules are enforced by the Metropolitan Police .
And it's not just bonfire night, the Met also bends the rules for Chinese New Year, New Year's Eve and Diwali, when fireworks can be let off up to 1am.
Members of the public should also note that the sale of fireworks is prohibited to those under the age of 18 and ahead of the celebrations, councils have issued a few tips of how to stay safe.
Brent Council has advised: "Only buy fireworks from a licensed trader. Give neighbours a few days of notice of your event."
It added: "Fireworks can be dangerous if used incorrectly or irresponsibly. You should seek additional advice or guidance to ensure your event is conducted safely, especially if you are using them for the first time."
