The North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) is urging parents to take steps to ensure Hallowe’en is a safe treat for children this year.

NWAS is urging parents to ensure they accompany children when they are “trick or treating”, to make sure children carry a torch or glow stick and wear reflective clothing to make them visible to drivers.

Director of operations Derek Cartwright, said: “Hallowe’en is a really exciting time for children and young people. The dark nights at this time of year can however lead to accidents, so it’s important to make sure children are as safe and as visible as possible.”
