From tomorrow Kiwis will be stocking up on their favourite fireworks for Guy Fawkes on Saturday, and while its a fun celebration for many police want to remind Kiwi buyers fireworks can be dangerous.

They asked people letting off crackers to do so in a safe and responsible way and to respect other people's property.
