South Yorkshire Police officers were patrolling in the Firth Park area of Sheffield at around 6pm last night when they came across a group of people setting off fireworks in the direction of vehicles.
Officers recovered a number of fireworks from Firth Park and a neighbouring road and remained in the area throughout the evening to ensure public safety.
Superintendent for Neighbourhoods Delphine Waring said: “Last night our officers were deployed in the Firth Park area when they came across around 30 people setting off fireworks in the street.
“This type of activity puts members of the public at risk and is absolutely not acceptable, especially when it’s disrupting people going about their daily lives and running their businesses.
“This afternoon and throughout the weekend we’ve got officers in the area, working with partners and speaking to the community, carrying out patrols and area searches.
“You will see us out and about, and if you want to come and talk to us about what happened or any other concerns, please do. We want to prevent what happened last night occurring again and we are working hard to keep the community safe.
“On the whole, last night we saw very few incidents with the majority of people having a great Halloween and enjoying themselves, which is fantastic for our communities.”
