The Horsefair Shopping Centre in Wisbech has been awash with zombies and ghouls today (Wednesday) for its annual Halloween event.

The free trick-or-treat event saw almost 500 children turn out in fancy dress.

Entertainment was put on, with fairground rides, balloon modelling and street entertainers. Youngsters could also go around the Horsefair shops to collect sweets.

Horsefair manager Kevin Smith said: “It’s been a phenomenal turn-out.”

The fancy dress competition was judged by Wisbech Mayor Viv MacRae, who had the tough job of picking just two winners and runners-up.

The best boy was Rocco Benincasa (7) with his convict outfit. The boy runner-up was Alex Lightburn (6) who was dressed as a Dementor from Harry Potter.

The best girl was zombie Skye George (10). The runner-up was Skye Valderas (6) who was a corpse bride.
