Happy Halloween with no fireworks for police
North Devon police report all was calm for October 31 and Bonfire Night celebrations.
A HAPPY Halloween and tranquil firework night with very little yobbish behaviour has been reported by police in North Devon.
Only three calls relating to anti social behaviour were received by the local force during the Halloween period and five during bonfire festivities.
“That is incredibly low when you consider that covers all the way from Ilfracombe to Tavistock,” said North Devon Sector Inspector Roger Bartlett.
“It reflects some really good work by local officers liaising with schools and holding assemblies about the impact of anti social behaviour.

“We are only too aware of how particularly the elderly and vulnerable can feel frightened on those nights. But both nights were very good-natured and we were really pleased with the outcome.
“Many attended public displays, which is a great way to enjoy the celebrations.”
