IT WAS a monster of a night as revellers stalked the streets of St Austell for its second zombie walk.

The town gave the silver screen's Twilight Trilogy a run for its money, as the weird and the wonderful turned out in force on Wednesday.

They donned fake blood, scars, prosthetics, bandages and snarls for the Hallowe'en celebration.

The night was a howling success and culminated with around 200 gruesome gatherers dancing en masse to Michael Jackson's Thriller in Aylmer Square led by dancers Shakedown and To Life.

Organisers Pete and Helen Minall wanted the zombie walk to attract all ages, but especially teenagers and people in their early twenties.

Mrs Minall said: "It was either going to be a hit or a miss and thankfully it was a big hit.

"It was just excellent."

The zombie walk raised nearly £300, which will be used to fund improvements in the Market House.

The plan is for an event bigger event next year.
