Cheshire Police are reminding people to take care and act responsibly this bonfire night.
Assistant chief constable Mark Roberts said: “Our officers will be out over the bonfire period and will provide a visible presence on the streets dealing with incidents of anti-social behaviour and criminal damage.
“We want people to go out and enjoy themselves, along with their family and friends, without having to worry about crime or anti-social behaviour. We will not tolerate anyone acting in an anti-social manner, and anyone found to be causing problems for local residents will be dealt with robustly.”
Anyone in possession of fireworks deemed to be acting in an anti-social manner will have their fireworks confiscated by officers.
Assistant chief constable Roberts added: “Last bonfire night we received over 1,400 calls from members of the public, of which 189 related to anti-social behaviour. We are imploring people to behave responsibly and not take unnecessary risks.”
Station manager Anthony Jones said: “We want everyone to enjoy the bonfire period by attending organised displays and there are plenty available for people to go to. Sadly a lot of our time is taken up dealing with deliberate fires at this time of year and we work closely with our partners to try and reduce these each year.”
