The campaign has been set up asking for the Secretary of State to make sure the public use of fireworks is reduced after claims surfaced that the annual celebration has caused alarm and distress to both people and animals, the Metro has reported.

The RSPCA have estimated around 45 per cent of dogs are afraid of fireworks and have urged for any pet owners to spend the night with their animals to keep them calm on November 5.

The petition needs to reach 10,000 signatures for the government to respond and 100,000 signatures will need the matter to be debated in Parliament.

Bonfire Night is a British tradition celebrating Guy Fawkes' failed attempt to blow up London's Houses of Parliament in the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, and to mark the occasion a mock doll of the historical figure is burned on bonfires across the country.
