As families prepare for a weekend of firework fun, police are reminding everyone of the need to act responsibly this bonfire night.
Neighbourhood teams will be patrolling across the area, ready to tackle 'robustly' anyone acting in an anti-social manner.
Anyone setting off a firework in a public space risks receiving an £80 Fixed Penalty Notice, and can be fined up to £5,000.
The same fine applies to anyone caught selling fireworks to under 18s.
Revellers are also reminded that it is illegal to set off fireworks between 11pm and 7am, although on Monday fireworks can be legally set off until midnight.
Anyone who sees any suspicious behaviour is advised to call the police non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
