A MAN has been charged after a firework was set off in Musselburgh.
The incident just after midnight on Christmas Eve frightened residents, police said.
Nobody was injured when the firework was set off in Bellfield Court, but an 18-year-old man was arrested and charged.
Inspector Andy Hill said: “I would like to reassure local residents that while malicious incidents such as this can be very frightening for people nearby,
“I can offer the reassurance that the device used was a theatrical firework, of a type available for general retail sale, and no firearms were involved.”
