WREXHAM Council is warning residents that safety should remain a priority when celebrating annual events.

They will be supporting North Wales Police with their 'Respect, Protect and Enjoy' message to urge people to celebrate Halloween and Bonfire Night safely this year.

A spokesperson for the council, said: "The force has launched Operation BANG, which is an annual safety campaign, and is asking people to think differently about the way they mark Halloween this year.

"With restrictions in place due to Covid-19, and some areas of North Wales under local restrictions, officers are encouraging people to respect their neighbours, protect the emergency services by reducing demand and enjoy celebrations at home."
