I never did buy any Aquila's (thanks to the warnings all over these forums), but its good that they are refunding even if you have used them. Although they are probably required to do so by law.

Pity about this as i have 2 of them but better to be safe than sorry i guess...i'll just get an extra Firefigher instead :)

Are these exclusive to Lidl? as i very much doubt i still have the receipt for them.

I wonder if they'll take them all out to a field somewhere and do a controlled explosion. Would be fun to watch.

I think we knew this was going to happen in the end though. We all know the issues and i am surprised they have left it so long

Thanks for that...i managed to find the receipt anyway.

I've heard a couple of people saying they didn't refund because they never had a receipt which is pretty shite to be honest...typical of a supermarket though :s

I never got round to taking mines back yet as was too busy with work etc and then last week I got a letter from Lidl assuring me that there was no faults with the Aquila and the most stringent tests had been carried out on these fireworks and no anomalies in performance or quality were revealed,so thanks for the heads up I'll be taking them back asap.

I think you should take the letter as well and get a little more out of them say "lidl had put your safety in jeopardy". Hopefully you get free pyro lol
