Which one makes it illegal to set off a single smoke flare in a field (with the landowner's permission), assuming you don't cause injury or damage?
Once you rule out injury or damage then the options are very much reduced (and obviously it's ALWAYS an offence to cause injury or damage - even if you use an ice lolly to do so, never mind a flare)
The explosive substances act may refer to storage conditions/quantities? Applies to all flares, no matter how you use them.
Firearms Act - similar - maybe an exemption for cartridge/pin flares if used in correct environment - a little like the blade laws??
This is one for Poly - he likes Rules. And maybe JK - he seems VERY fond of flarey things that go pop
