Trick or treaters told to 'have a Happy Halloween' but to act within the law

RESIDENTS are being urged to ensure they have a safe, enjoyable and happy Halloween by following advice issued by West Mercia Police.
Children who are going trick or treating should be accompanied by adults and are asked not to knock on the doors of strangers.
Youngsters should never go into people’s homes and should always stick to well-lit areas, wear bright clothing and take a torch along with them.
Trick or treaters are also urged to remember road safety and not to visit older members of their community.
They should take care not to frighten vulnerable people and keep any tricks played ‘within the law’.
Anything that results in damage, officers warn, would be a criminal offence and would be treated as such.
People should also refrain from knocking on doors of homes which have a ‘No Trick or Treat’ sign (as the one pictured shows).
