POLICE have praised children who took part in trick or treating on Halloween this year for their "good behaviour".

Sergeant Andy Turner, of Sidmouth Police, said that, apart from one isolated incident, Halloween was a quiet night for them.

He said police were called to Woolbrook Rise on Friday evening after reports that a window had been smashed by children.

Two young boys were spoken to by police in connection with the damaged window.

Sergeant Turner said: "Halloween this year was relatively quiet and trouble-free for us.

"Children who took part in trick or treating were very well behaved.

"It was extremely good natured apart from those two boys who we dealt with at the time.

"I spoke to residents who put posters and stickers in their windows which requested children not to knock on their doors.

"They were grateful that people respected their decision and didn't bother them.
