The prevalence of fireworks going off in Dublin appears to be a big problem in the run-up to this Halloween and last night was no different.

Fireworks were reportedly lit and aimed at cars and pedestrians in the Hanlon's Corner area of Dublin 7 last night and a local community group has called on Gardaí to take action.

Stoneybatter Pride of Place has posted to Twitter to warn locals about the activity, writing: 'Hello all, tonight fireworks along North Circular Road towards Hanlon's Corner are bring fired out at cars & passers by. Please be careful and let others know if nearby. Happening across Dublin 7 & getting worse.'

Stoneybatter PoP went on to advise locals on how to report such activity in the coming weeks as Halloween approaches...
