Licensing Bonfires

Sep 29, 2015, 07:28 PM

SDLP Environment Minister Mark H Durkan has said he is looking at the option of licensing plans for all bonfires in Northern Ireland.

Although there are no laws against having a bonfire there are laws for the nuisance they can cause.

There are also various environmental laws that are currently not enforced in Northern Ireland during the bonfire season.

Is licensing a good idea or would it merely inflame tensions.
