It's halloween so what better way to get you in the mood for the spookiest evening of the year than a tour of a graveyard in Cambridgeshire?

Wisbech General Cemetery is the final resting place for 6,000 people but stopped taking burials in the early 1970s. Since then the Victorian chapel and gravestones have fallen into disrepair.

Now the Wisbech Society wants to raise £300,000 to renovate the site and make it more accessible to visitors.

Stuart Leithes has been to take a look.

They also offer a few more handy hints - and some impressive dance moves.

Video: Stark warning on fire safety of Halloween costumes

There's been a stark warning over the safety of Halloween costumes for children.

Fire authorities and Trading Standards in Stevenage, Hertfordshire have carried a dramatic fire test to demonstrate how easy it is for some fancy dress to catch alight.

Television presenter Claudia Winkleman has described how her eight-year-old daughter "went up like a birthday candle" when the Halloween fancy dress witch costume she was wearing suddenly set alight last year.
