The area on New Year’s Eve was relatively quiet.
Because there were no big parties to keep young people off the street, major unrest was expected, but this did not happen.
Just before half past eleven, a pickup truck was damaged by a fire at Herenstraat in Wateringen. The fire may have set in, as eyewitnesses saw a group of young men fleeing just before the fire.

In Maasdijk the weather was turbulent early in the evening, when heavy fireworks were set off. A Molotov cocktail was also thrown. The ready-made platoon of police and implementers from the municipality kept the situation under control. A house fire has been reported to Breitner in Monster. A person and some pets were injured. In the afternoon, police moved into the skate park at Zandeveltweg in ‘s-Gravenzande. There were also heavy fireworks.
Although fireworks have been banned, a lot has happened in the air at noon, as can be seen in the video below. Later in the day, the municipalities of Westland, Midden-Delfland and Maassluis will report on the itinerary at the start of the year.
