Man recklessly set off fireworks outside cathedral
Norman Wood's pyrotechnics sent smoke billowing across street in Kirkwall, Orkney.
A man filled a street with smoke after "recklessly" setting off fireworks.
Norman Wood was jailed for six months following the incident outside St Magnus Cathedral on Broad Street in Kirkwall, Orkney.
The 48-year-old was sentenced at Kirkwall Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
Passers-by watched on as smoke billowed across the street on December 30.
No one was injured in the incident over the festive season.
Orkney area commander chief inspector Matt Webb said: "Norman Wood's actions were entirely reckless and it is fortunate that nobody was injured as a result.
"Fireworks can be incredibly dangerous when not used safely and the consequences of his behaviour could have been far more severe."
