A village pub has pulled the stops out for Halloween, despite undergoing refurbishment following a flood.

Visitors to The Buck in Morley St Botolph on Wednesday, October 31 were greeted with all manner of spooks and ghouls.

Mother-of-two and Buck customer Tracey Fairweather has transformed the pub into a one-night-only Halloween nightmare for three years.

Landlady Leslie Curruthers said the fact the inside of the pub is being refurbished following a serious flood in June was not going to stop them from continuing a budding tradition.

She said: 'She's really gone to town this time, and it's getting bigger and bigger every year. We have holograms with ghosts coming out of the ground, and Tracey is dressing up as an old lady in a bed, and chasing people.
