IT WAS a case of silent nights on both Halloween and Guy Fawkes for police in Biggleswade, Sandy and Potton as well as the surrounding villages.

Inspector John Maries of Biggleswade police said his officers did not have one reported incident in the three towns from his beat officers.

"People were very well behaved and we didn't have one call from the public about kids out trick or treating or about fireworks," said Insp Maries.

"We sent out a clear message before Halloween and firework night that we would have officers out watching for youngsters causing trouble.

"Last year we had a problem with eggs being thrown at houses and cars in one area of Biggleswade and shopkeepers were asked not to sell eggs to children.

"In that area it was also quiet so we were able to spend more time trying to deal with real crime.
