Brits headed out on the town in their scariest Halloween outfits to celebrate the spookiest weekend of the year.

Thousands of revellers ventured in the cold to enjoy a night at their local pubs, bars and nightclubs.

To mark the occasion they donned their impressive, clever, and downright scary outfits to make the night memorable.

Party-goers in Leeds went out early doors, with the likes of Chucky, dark angels, and serial killer costumes armed with bloody cleavers on the street.

One reveller spiced up their cowboy outfit with jean shorts and a cut-out chequered shirt with the all-important cowboy boots.

Another had an impressive lit-up pumpkin on their head as they posed for photos.
