An emergency call to the Fire Service was received every 90 seconds at one point over the Halloween night celebrations.

Crews across Northern Ireland responded to 277 calls over the 24-hour period - the majority of which involved bonfires, rubbish and gorse.

According to the NIFRS, the number of calls was well below average for Hallowe'en.

Area Commander Dale Ashford added: "We are glad to report that our crews have been able to carry out their duties with very little in the way of disturbance."
