Fireworks Anti-Social Behaviour

Alert message sent 23/10/2019 14:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Lancashire Constabulary


We have received a large number of reports of fireworks being thrown at people, houses, and vehicles in your area. The main offenders involved are in groups of up to 10-15 young people aged between 12 and 16 years.

The incidents are occurring mainly between 17.30 and 23.00.

Clearly this is causing distress to elderly residents, and families with young children and pets. If you are the parent or guardian of a young person within this age group who are going out in the evening between 17.30 and 23.00 please can you make them aware of this message and if they are part of such a group that they be aware of the the effects and dangers that they are putting themselves in and to be considerate of other members of the community.

Police Patrols will be in and around the area wherever possible dependant on other demand. 

Thankyou for your assistance
