Hang on - some from Brighton, Eastbourne and London - what about the ones that didn't state a hometown - perhaps they were from Lewes!?

Then take off the unnecessary arrests by green behind the ears out of town clueless coppers and you are left with 1 arrest, entirely bonfire unrelated.
Can we carry on where we left off now please?

As someone has correctly posted elsewhere, that figure will include anyone who went to the St John's people for anything. A paracetamol, a replacement inhaler, a plaster for a splinter from picking up a discarded torch, a sparkler burn, a twisted ankle from falling over when p*ssed, a bit of hot ash on top of the head, a cut finger from a broken beer bottle, a bruised hand from punching some other drunken chav, a blistered foot from too long spent teetering about in high heels, and so on...

that was what I was about to write.....supoer K why are you gouls all so keen to point out that in large crowds people sometimes get hurt. it happens at footie matches to and carnivals but you don't see people hanging on with bated braeth to find out the gory details.

Because Bastion these injuries are recorded as bonfire injury statistics. Even if no firework, match or any other heat source was the cause. Drunk and falling off a wall and hurting ones head, as happened to someone last year, is not a bonfire injury even though it happened in Lewes on November 5th in the evening.
So how many of the injuries this year were actually bonfire related. Plod wont reveal those figures I am sure.

I'm sure a Freedom of Information request would reveal the nature of the injuries.

St Johns provide a detailed injury report which includes SECAMB. This is made available for the Bonfire Societies so ask your representative once this information is available. It is generally along the lines of what Bonfire Boy says.
