Police dismantle home-made Wigan bonfires over safety concerns
Police patrols say they have dismantled several makeshift bonfires amid fears for public safety.
Officers from GMP Wigan West took to social media to inform residents that they had been round several neighbourhoods to take apart several structures, including the one pictured.
A spokesperson said: “Whilst this may seem unfair and that we are intent on spoiling the 'harmless' fun, un-regulated bonfires can increase the risk of injury and things going wrong.
“We want everyone to be safe and enjoy the Bonfire weekend.”
