Sgt Mark McSweeney said: "We know that instances of anti-social behaviour can increase at this time of year and some communities can suffer more than others.

"Also fireworks in the wrong hands can cause misery as they are used to damage property as well as threaten or injure people."

He added: "While Halloween can undoubtedly be a great deal of fun, it can also be a particularly distressing time of year for some of the more vulnerable members of our communities - especially the elderly.

"Trick or treaters are therefore being urged to only knock on doors where the poster is displayed."

Trick or treat posters can be obtained by calling neighbourhood policing teams on 101.
