JOINT efforts to keep down the number of reported incidents of anti-social behaviour on Halloween across East Devon this year, including cooperation between parents and shopkeepers, has paid off.

Gerry Moore, community safety officer for East Devon said: "Last year on October 31, there were 19 reports of anti-social behaviour, whereas this year there were 17.

"Ten of these were in Exmouth alone which means that in the other areas there were only a very small number of problems.

"I am pleased to say that working in partnership continues to produce good results and my thanks go to all those who contributed to our Autumnal Safety Strategy.
