Gang bombs fire crews with missiles in shocking CCTV footage

Alarming footage was shared of a group attacking emergency services with fireworks on Bonfire Night.

Lancashire Constabulary released the CCTV footage in an attempt to locate the offenders, who launched the assault on the fire trucks on November 5.

In the video, a group can be seen throwing numerous fireworks at fire trucks as they pass.

This year, several incidents occurred on Bonfire Night, with missiles targeting police, paramedics and firefighters.

The next day, November 6, Police Chief Chris Rowley condemned the behavior, calling it shame.

“It makes me incredibly sad, angry and disappointed that people feel like they can behave this way towards my officers and emergency services in general,” he said.

“Last night’s events were completely inexcusable and demonstrate a complete lack of respect for emergency service workers who do everything possible day in and day out to keep our communities safe.

“Police officers are human beings and many of them live in the communities they monitor and protect. They do not come to work to be mistreated and physically assaulted by a small minority of narrow-minded and dumb people who clearly have no respect for the authorities or the communities in which they live.

“It is only a matter of luck that no police, paramedic or firefighter were seriously injured in the shameful events of last night.”

Anyone with information on the offenders seen in the pictures can contact Lancashire Police on 101 citing Journal 1535 for November 5th.
