Last updated at 12:15, Wednesday, 31 October 2012
HORDES of ghastly ghouls descended on Hexham on Saturday, transforming the town into the stuff of nightmares.
Witches, vampires, skeletons and werewolves were seen piling off trains and out of jam-packed car parks to take part in the freaky family fun that is the annual Spook Night event.

STAFF at five hospitals in the Tynedale area walked out during a strike over pay.
Hexham General, Hexham War Memorial, Haltwhistle War Memorial, Wooley Sanatorium and Prudhoe hospitals, were all affected after the National Union of Public Employees called out their members.
Ancillary staff, including porters, cooks, telephone operators and boilermen joined the 12-hour stoppage with some NUPE members taking part in a protest march in Newcastle.
