Ian Hopkins, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police, yesterday called for a change in the law so pyrotechnics (buổi biểu diễn pháo hoa; thuật làm pháo hoa; sự sắc sảo, sự tỏ ra trội (trong cách ăn nói, của trí tuệ...)) are no longer used by young people to “terrorise” communities. While Mr Hopkins stressed he did not want to come across as a “party pooper”, he said the law needed to become stricter (gắt gao, chặt chẽ hơn).
