Police Warn against ghoulish Halloween behaviour in Potters Bar

GHOULISH behaviour from trick-or-treat tearaways will not be tolerated in Potters Bar on Halloween, police have warned.

Anti-yob patrols will be stepped up in the town and police have pledged they will deal “robustly” with incidents of anti-social behaviour.

A spokeswoman added that officers had been “working with retail outlets to prevent selling flour and eggs to children.”

She added: “The school’s PCSO has been going round to schools to reinforce the message.”

Borough councillor John Donne, community safety portfolio holder, said: “We want people to have fun at Halloween but also to be safe and think about how their behaviour might affect other people.”
