Police call for a 'harmless' Halloween
Herts police are urging people to make sure Halloween is an evening of harmless fun and not a night of criminal damage and antisocial behaviour.
Officers have renewed their annual Halloween guidelines and say troublemakers will be dealt with robustly.
Police say that people concerned about, or intimidated by, trick or treating, should report any incidents at the time they happen.
The force has again issued its Halloween guidelines in an effort to make the night safe and trouble-free for all.
