THESE spooky photos in and around York are enough to persuade you to lock yourself away safely indoors this Halloween!

We asked our Press Camera Members to come up some creative photos to mark Halloween.

And they didn't hold back!

From ghosts and ghouls to bats by moonlight and creepy images in trees - there are images here worthy of their own Hammer Horror film!

Our Camera Club members have clearly had a lot of fun using Photoshop to create their creepy photos.

We hope you enjoy looking at them, as much as we have!
