Camden police have reminded those planning to make the trek up to Primrose Hill on Bonfire Night not to bring their own fireworks or Chinese lanterns over fears they could set light to nearby homes.
Officers will be guarding all entrances to the park to stop anyone attempting to bring them in.
They say anyone found with the offending items will be asked to surrender them and may not be allowed into the park.
A Royal Parks Metropolitan Police spokesman 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 a nuisance or danger by setting off fireworks or committing other Anti Social Behaviour.”

The firework display on Primrose Hill was cancelled several years ago due to safety concerns.
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 anyone who wants to enjoy the park and watch the various firework displays being held across the capital, all we ask is that litter be placed in the park bins or taken home.”
