Scotsman.com News - Latest News - Hallowe'en Children Face Eggs and Flour Ban

A council has waged war on mischievous Halloween youngsters by banning children from buying eggs, it emerged today.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council has joined forces with several major stores to stop youngsters buying eggs for "trick or treating".

The supermarkets have also agreed not to sell flour, firelighters or matches to anyone under 16 during the 10-day ban.


In Brampton, a small town near Carlisle, there is a By-Law which bans children under the age of 16 from ever purchasing eggs without adult surpervision.

On the plus side we haven't had one lot of "trick or treat-ers" at our door thus far. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for another weekend of stormy nights to keep them at bay.
