They also want information on where the yobs are stashing their fireworks.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Officers have been targeted for the second night in the Broomhall area of Sheffield. Luckily there have been no injuries but of course there is very serious potential if anyone is hit.

"Local residents are also having fireworks thrown at them.

"Any information to lead us to the offenders or location of stashed fireworks is greatly received."
