Sainsbury’s has become the first UK supermarket chain to stop selling fireworks.

The move was announced as a pet charity the Dogs Trust warned over the dangers of fireworks for pets and urged other supermarkets to follow suit.

We asked readers to vote on whether they agreed - and it seems as though you had strong feelings on the subject.

Sainsbury’s first stopped selling fireworks in 2019 in a move which affected all 2,300 UK Stores and the retailer has confirmed this will once again be the case in 2021.

A Sainsbury’s spokesperson said: "We regularly review the products available in our stores and we are no longer selling fireworks based on a range of factors.

"Customers can continue to choose from a range of seasonal products, such as glow sticks and light-up spinning wands."

We asked: Should there be a total ban on fireworks sold in supermarkets and shops?

Readers posted their thoughts on the Guardian’s Facebook page, with many agreeing other supermarkets should follow in Sainsbury’s footsteps.

Michelle Stone said: “Yes, keep them to professional displays then they can be kept to a few days rather than weeks on end. Better for families, pets and wildlife.”

Mena Venton posted: “Yeeeeeees.....fireworks are not essential at all...”

Maggie Sandford added: “Definitely.”

However, some readers disagreed.

Claire Frodsham posted: “No, they’re only on sale a few times a year (for the most part). They’re fun for all age groups. You have to prove you’re of age to buy them, no need to flat out stop selling them.”
