Residents in Sussex will display warning signs to let would-be trick or treaters know they are not welcome this Halloween.

According to, children in Crawley are being asked to show locals respect this October 31st, as part of a joint venture between Crawley Police, the Neighbourhood Watch and West Sussex County Council.

Sergeant for Crawley Police, Darren Taylor, told the news provider that "frightened" and "intimidated" elderly people had got in touch on previous Halloweens.

"Not everyone wants to take part in trick-or-treating so if you see a poster we ask that you respect their wishes," he said.

The warning signs will offer a clear message to youngsters as to which houses welcome spooky visits and which don't.

The police force have also agreed with local shops that flour, eggs, tomatoes and paint will not be sold to people aged under 16, the news provider reported.

The tradition of Halloween celebrates the night before All Souls Day, and is also known as All Hallows Eve.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800113189-ADNFCR
