Is this the best Halloween display in the North East?

A north east couple are attempting to put on the region's best Halloween display ahead of the main event on October 31.

Julie Collop and Alan Dewar, from Northumberland, have decorated their garden in a spooky setup in Bebside.

What began as a something of a wind up has slowly morphed into a full-blown tradition.

This year's display follows a 1920s-themed, jazzy theme.

It started off as a way of winding the kids up a bit but it's become a bit of tradition.

People make a special effort to drive here and have a look and get a picture, it's surreal.

Alan puts quite a lot of work into putting it together so I'm quite proud of it really.

I was actually a bit nervous in case people didn't like it as much as last year but people have been really nice about it, the comments have been really positive.
