He added:

“In the lead up to Bonfire Night I’d like to make a direct appeal to the public to act responsibly. Fireworks are explosives and can cause real and lasting damage.

“Please talk to your children about where they are and what they are doing.

“If you see or experience anyone behaving recklessly with fireworks, please report it to the police immediately.”

Police are investigating the incident at Redbridge and have appealed for any witnesses, or people who may know who was responsible, to report it online or via 101 quoting reference number 44220443014.
