Another person runs towards the car in the opposite direction after the fireworks are set off and hops in the car.

A witness, who didn't want to be named, said: "They [the fireworks] were being let off in the direction of the flats.

"They were getting them out of their car boot and running in another direction letting them off and coming back.

"They were doing it in in teams and it hit some people's cars.

"It woke everyone up. You could hear people shouting out of the flat windows. It petrified everyone.

"Someone shouted: 'what the hell are you doing?' Another lady shouted out the window: 'what the hell is going on?' They all kept laughing.

"The night before they had music blaring out their cars, and fireworks, and were waking everyone up at 1am.

"It’s been ongoing for a few nights."

A spokeswoman for Northamptonshire Police said the force was called at 6.08am to Henry Bird Way following reports of people lighting fireworks in the street.
