Youths who hurl eggs and flour in the run up to and after Halloween will be dealt with by police, according to Pocklington sergeant Dave Dosdale.

Local PCSOs have been visiting shops in the area, asking them to be vigilant and responsible as to who they sell eggs and flour to.

PCSOs have also visited local schools, including Pocklington Infant School and Pocklington Community Junior School, to inform children how they can stay safe while trick or treating.
