Trick and treat as people enjoy Halloween fun
Legions of witches, ghosts, ghouls and zombies battled appalling weather conditions last night while stalking the highways and byways of the Westcountry in the spirit of Halloween.
The annual scare-fest saw crowds of youngsters trick-or-treating their way around neighbourhoods, while older revellers partied the night away.
In St Austell thrill-seekers enjoyed a zombie walk around the town. Dozens taking part shuffling through the streets in gory make-up and tattered clothes. And in the town centre a mass Michael Jackson-style Thriller dance routine was held.
In Falmouth, spooky secrets and ghastly tales were revealed at the magnificent Pendennis Castle on a tour around historic battlements.
Over in Devon, for some it was a trip around Kents Cavern, Torquay for a Halloween ghost tour.
Set in the dimly lit caves characters appeared from the dark to make visitors jump.
Haunted hay-rides were the order of the day at The BIG Sheep attraction, near Bideford, north Devon, with wicked witches and scary skeletons.
