Emergency services work together to keep people safe on Bonfire Night

Police and the fire and rescue service in Cheshire have teamed up to ensure everyone has an enjoyable Bonfire Night.

As well as working with young people and parents in a bid to educate people on the consequences of nuisance fires, preventative action is also being taken with the use of a waste recovery team to remove potentially nuisance or dangerous bonfires. 

The public can also do their bit to reduce the likelihood of deliberate fires by ensuring wheelie bins and rubbish are not left out in the open, once your bin has been emptied please ensure you put it away securely.

Firefighters will be working closely with Cheshire Police over the bonfire period to keep people safe.

Last weekend they attended a number of incidents in the Winsford area.
