Sights of ghosts, ghouls and witches were seen lurking in the streets of King’s Lynn town centre.

But these ghostbusting youngsters were on a spooky trail dressed in their best Halloween outfits.

Hosted by the Vancouver Quarter and West Norfolk council, the special Halloween map took kids around the town picking up codewords from retailers.

Once they had solved the mystery on their return to Halloween HQ, the “meddling kids” were rewarded with a Scooby snack - a goody bag as well as being entered into a prize draw to win £200 to spend in the town on toys.

Speaking ahead of the event on Tuesday, October 31, Vancouver Quarter centre manager Abbie Panks said: “The event is so well supported every year and it’s a great opportunity for town centre businesses and attractions to work together to provide yet another fun and free event.”
