The crew were luckily unharmed but the fireworks damaged the lockers on the outside of the engine.

Dave Walton, Deputy Chief Fire Officer said: “This week we have seen a handful of attacks on our crews from a mindless few.

"Fireworks being used as weapons to attack our crews and fire engines is completely unacceptable and the recklessness of this behaviour beggars belief.

“Luckily no firefighters have been injured but we feel that if this kind of behaviour continues it is only a matter of time.
