Hexham Spook Night
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.

Prudhoe workers were queuing up at the town's employment exchange to put their names down for jobs at a new £15million wood pulp factory.
Plans for the factory, which would occupy the former ICI site, had been passed by Northumberland County Council, and it was hoped that when it opened it would turn Prudhoe into a boom town.
Many of those registering for jobs had been unemployed since the ICI plant closed down the previous July.
