Stay safe this Bonfire Night Date published: 2nd November 2015 9am

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, from Cheshire Fire and Rescue 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."
