They'll be an increased Police presence around Dorset tonight to deal with any Halloween troublemakers.

Safer Neighbourhood teams have been handing out posters encouraging people to "Have Fun" but respect others in the lead up to All Hallows Eve.

People are being warned to take note of homes showing "No Trick or Treating" signs, and politely move on without causing any trouble.

For the second year running there have been fewer reports to Police about anti-social behaviour in Dorset.

Chief Superintendent Jane Newall said: "We appreciate that people want to go out and enjoy the Halloween festivities and go trick or treating, but it is important to respect the views of others who do not want to participate. If homes are displaying 'No trick or treating' signs, then please politely move on.

"Anti-social behaviour continues to reduce in Dorset and during this time we will have extra patrols in communities to ensure that we continue to take appropriate action against anyone found to be committing crime or anti-social behaviour."
