Halloween mission for Bond film

Police in Derbyshire have turned to James Bond for help in dealing with trick or treaters this Halloween.

They offered local teenagers the chance to see Quantum of Solace for free in order to keep them off the streets and out of trouble.

The screening at the Galaxy cinema in Long Eaton was aimed at young people aged between 13 and 17.

Police said a strict no-alcohol policy would be in force and places would be given on a first-come basis.

PCSO Sean Hill said: "Halloween is a busy time of the year for us and we know that a lot of residents find trick or treating intimidating, especially when some troublesome individuals resort to anti-social behaviour.

"We have arranged this cinema screening to encourage local teenagers into a safe, warm and fun environment, leaving younger children to trick or treat with their families."


The idea is to stop trick or treaters
