Local authorities are reminding parents to keep an eye on their children during ‘Mischief Night’.
Traditionally, the night before Halloween sees young people engage in pranks that can often go too far.
Last year the BBC reported on the chaos of ‘Mischief Night’ after Merseyside saw 12 arson attacks.
A South Ribble Police spokesman said, “The night before Halloween is well known to be ‘Mischief Night,’ where we see an increase in Anti-social behaviour in our communities.
“The South Ribble Neighbourhood Team would like to remind all parents to keep a close eye on their children’s behaviour and be aware where they are tonight!
“We also encourage local residents to call 101 or 999 in an emergency in order to report any issues that may occur.”
