Extra Thames Valley Police patrols for Halloween

Police are putting on extra patrols across the Thames Valley in an effort to deter anti-social behaviour over Halloween.

Last Halloween, there were 526 crimes recorded through the area - more than any other single day across the rest of the year.

A spokesman said officers were trying new ways to encourage trick or treaters to remain on the right side of the law.
