Shocking moment exploding firework narrowly misses car as yobs target drivers

This is the shocking moment yobs launch a sickening firework attack on moving traffic and pedestrians - and then flee the scene.

The footage, shot in Harrow, comes after days of chaos that has seen firework attacks across London.

Incidents were recorded in Harrow, Enfield and Haringey with officers reporting multiple cases of confiscating fireworks from teenagers.

Haringey police said that since 2pm on Wednesday one of its response teams received over 60 calls that required immediate response - 50 percent of which related to fireworks and anti-social behaviour.     

This video was taken on Cumberland Road in Queensbury and shows the two youths on what is one of the busiest nights of the year for police up and down the country.

In other distressing reports coming from East London, gangs of youths turned a neighbourhood in Hackney into a 'war zone' as they used fireworks as weapons, shooting them at each other - with one young man even suffering injuries from a direct hit. 

In Enfield, police confirmed that they arrested a 14-year-old for possession of fireworks at Edmonton Green. The legal age to buy any firework is 16 for the lowest category firework.

A call was made to police on Saturday October 20 at 6.33pm to reports of 'a number of youths' setting off fireworks at a car park in Kymberley Road, according to GetWestLondon.
