Police descended on Bill Quay Farm after teenagers reportedly threw fireworks at families attending a Halloween event.
The Gateshead farm was forced to cancel its ‘Fright Night’ event on Monday (October 30) which saw crowds turn out to take part in a spooky trail.
Northumbria Police said that officers were called to the attraction at around 7pm following reports that groups of teenagers were aggressive towards staff and threw fireworks at members of the public. The force confirmed that no one was injured and said it had launched an investigation.
A Northumbria Police spokeswoman said: “Shortly after 7pm last night (Monday), police received a report of a disturbance at Bill Quay Community Farm in Gateshead. It was reported a number of teenagers were acting aggressively towards staff, whilst another group threw what are believed to be fireworks at members of the public.
“Officers attended, however those involved in the disturbance had dispersed from the scene prior to police arrival. Thankfully, no one is believed to have been injured, although unfortunately the event was subsequently cancelled by the organisers.
“Enquires are ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to contact police via the ‘Tell Us Something’ page of our website, or by calling 101, quoting log NP-20231030-0982.”
In a statement on Facebook, Bill Quay Farm said: “With the events of last night’s scare garden, we would just like to clarify that no one was harmed or injured and all of the animals are safe.”
