Pc Alex Kettle and Pcso Amanda Bridgeman are organising the extravaganza at King George V playing fields, WGC, which will include live music, fire eaters, dance performances from the area's schoolchildren and a funfair, including a ghost train.

He added: "Normally it's the naughty kids that get to go away [to a theme park] but we thought that's not really fair.
"This is a community event."
The event has received funding from Welwyn Hatfield borough councillors, John Lewis and the police.
Fright night will take place on Saturday, October 31, from 5pm to 10pm.
