Tayside Police have issued guisers with a warning ahead of Halloween tomorrow.
Guising – known in America as trick or treating – involves asking for a gift at people’s homes.
Police say that folk who knock on doors should avoid those who don’t want to be disturbed.
A statement said: “PLEASE be mindful that many people don’t want to be bothered by guisers, so please respect any signs or notifications of the ‘not here please’ variety.”
The statement says that most of the safety advice is “common sense”, adding: “Don’t go to doors or into houses you don’t know, be seen, if you’re old enough to be unaccompanied make sure an adult knows where you’re going and when you’ll be back.
“For many of our youngsters, Halloween means going out guising, so please take appropriate care out there.
“Have fun everyone – we hope you have a howling good time.”
