Children had a smashing time joining in at a creep-tastic pumpkin-carving event at a shop in Hemel Hempstead last night.

The Bennetts End Nisa Local store in Crabtree Lane invited local youngsters to have a go at testing their creative carving skills on the brightly coloured orange winter squash, as well as parade their spooky costumes before they went out trick or treating.

But luckily there were no tricks at Nisa – owned by businessman Kishor Patel – just treats for all the scarily-dressed participants.
