Angry Largs residents have blasted an 'idiot' who let off fireworks in the early hours of Wednesday morning. 

The incident happened at around 1am in the Holehouse Road area of the town. 

It is thought to be the second such blast in a week, with residents also awoken last week to a similar noise. 

Angry residents took to social media to voice their displeasure about the anti-social behavior. 

One said: "Did anyone else hear the big bang just before 1am last night.

"I was reading and it gave me such a fright. There was nobody about and it don't know what that was."

Another resident pulled no punches in describing the antics of the perpetrator. 

They said: "Some idiot let a firework off at the crescent in Holehouse Road. Why? We will never know, brains of a hamburger."

Another said: "To whoever the person is in Holehouse Road that set off a firework, just stop, there's a time and a place and i'd rather it not through my window."

One resident added: "It's impossible not to ignore it, especially when it wakes you up in the middle of the night. 

"Hopefully whoever did it sees how much distress it causes and stops."
