Thousands of people across the ITV Meridian region have spent hours patiently carving some spectacular pumpkin creations for Halloween tonight. Here's just a few:

Kent band Stringfever have put together a Spooky Movie Medley ahead of their performance at the Canterbury Music Festival tonight. It has been recorded by the band using just their violectras and cello and a bit of beat boxing.
Firefighters are to go on strike, from this evening, for four days in a bitter ongoing row with the Government over pensions.
They're set to walk out from six o'clock this Hallowe'en evening, until next Tuesday. Contingency plans are in place. Managers say they've hired in contract staff to cover but this is one of the busiest weekends of the year with bonfires and firework displays.
We're in for a treat today .... and the warmest Hallowe'en on record. Temperatures are expected to reach twenty one degrees today - eight degrees higher than average.
The Met Office says the last time the temperature was this high - at this time of year - was in Dartford, in Kent, in 1968. That was 20 degrees then.
Another unseasonably warm day, with low cloud and mist clearing to leave long sunny spells.Read the full story ›

A maritime centre in Oxfordshire has launched the world's 'most sophisticated' ship simulator.
The marine modelling facilities will help engineers to improve the design of ships and structures such as oil rigs. HR Wallingford's UK Ship Simulation Centre and the Fast Flow Facility are at Howbery Business Park in Oxfordshire.
The Fast Flow Facility is a 75 m long, 8 m wide dual-channel flume which can hold a million litres of water, generate 1 metre high waves and produce fast tidal currents to simulate the way waves, tides, sediments and structures interact.
"What makes the Fast Flow Facility unique is the way we can simulate sediment movement, big waves and fast tidal currents at the same time. No one else can do this, certainly not at such a large scale.
"We can now look at the way waves and currents move sediment on the seabed in deep water at a large scale, and understand what this means for fixed or floating structures such as marine terminals, offshore wind turbines, wave and tidal energy devices, telecommunication and power cables and pipelines. Modelling large structures and arrays without compromising on scale will help us to reduce uncertainty, optimise designs and more effectively minimise project risks for our clients during the very early stages of a project."
