The 31st of this month is a significant date – and no we are not talking about Brexit.

October has crept up on us all and Halloween is only a couple of weeks away.

A Marmite occasion, lots of people either make a massive effort to celebrate it or avoid it like the plague.

East Area Command - the police service responsible for looking after Redbridge, Havering and Barking and Dagenham - have created a poster for those who don't want witches, ghosts and perhaps a few people dressed up as Boris Johnson knocking at their door.

Pc Dave Bunn said: "Halloween is just around the corner and for those of you (me included) that do not want people knocking on your door I have attached a poster which can be printed out and placed in a prominent window or on the front door.
