ONE benefit of lockdown might be the lack of fireworks.

My poor dog suffers every year but at least public displays will be off in 2020 and hopefully new year too.

Now I would like that to be the case every year.

As soon as he hears fireworks, he is left shaking and stuttering.

The poor thing is terrified and hides behind the sofa.

Fireworks should be banned but hopefully a quieter firework night will help this year to prove that it does affect animals.

I fear bonfire night for weeks before so I think I will be able to sleep easier in the knowledge this could be quieter.

Hopefully people not being allowed out in groups will stop youths setting off fireworks at all hours as well.
