The Royal Parks and Camden Police are reminding people not to bring fireworks or paper lanterns to Primrose Hill over the bonfire night period.

Visitors to Primrose Hill are welcome to enjoy views of the London skyline from the top of the hill and watch firework displays taking place all over the capital, but there is no planned display and the park will close at 9pm each night.

The Royal Parks and Camden Police will be working closely to ensure that no fireworks or paper lanterns are lit on Primrose Hill, as this is strictly prohibited under Park Regulations and a danger to the public. 

Police officers will be at all the gates to Primrose Hill to stop anyone attempting to bring in fireworks or lanterns.  Anyone who has any will be asked to surrender them to officers for safe disposal and may not be allowed into the park. 

Mark Bridger Assistant Park Manager for Regent's Park and Primrose Hill, said: 

"The summit of Primrose Hill has wonderful views across London and we welcome people who want to see the various firework displays being held across the capital.  However, it isn't suitable for hosting a display or for people to bring their own fireworks.  Also, paper lanterns can be dangerous when lit in densely populated areas and cause damage to the park.    

"Signs are now in place around the park to make people aware of what will be happening during the bonfire night period." 

Throughout the firework season, especially during the weekend and Tuesday November 5, officers based in the parks will be supported by Camden Police.  This will help with crowd control and making sure everyone clears the park safely at 9pm each night. Large dot matrix screens will be used to provide up-to-date messages to the watching crowds. 

Inspector Chris Churchman, from the Metropolitan Police's Royal Parks team, said: 

"I urge members of the public not to attend Primrose Hill with fireworks this year. This will allow my officers to focus their efforts on anyone intent on causing danger by throwing fireworks around and will be an immense help to us in keeping the public safe."
