Late reminder for Hallowe'en: use it for Bonfire Night

When I tell you that this reminder comes from the executive director and chief counsel of (US), you might have an idea what to expect. Never mind the car accidents and the poisonous candy (he says). Don't be too concerned about fires either (let's add). The death toll from secondary smoke tops the lot.
Thus, suggests Prof. John Banzhaf of Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), adults should warn their children this Halloween, and also on other days, against visiting, going to parties, or playing in homes where adults smoke, especially in their presence. 
Adults puffing around the bonfire are clearly to be avoided like poison.

Stay safe. Avoid smoking adults on bonfire night.

I wonder how many councils that are banning smoking in open public places will permit firework displays and bonfires in them?
