Avon and Somerset Constabulary is urging people to remain safe during autumn, especially at carnivals and Halloween or Bonfire Night events.
Somerset After Dark is the force’s new autumn safety campaign. Chief Inspector Mark Edgington said: “We want everyone to enjoy carnivals and the variety of firework displays and Halloween festivities on offer for the next few months.
“The message from us and our partners is simple – enjoy yourselves, but do so safely, legally and responsibly.”
Police will work with councils, trading standards and the fire service to keep people safe. The campaign includes crime prevention and offering personal safety and travel advice.
