Royal Mail has revealed a new stamp celebrating Londonderry's annual Halloween festival.

Eight colourful stamps have been released to capture the spirit of well known events and festivals that take place across the UK.

Tens of thousands of people line the streets of Derry every year for the Halloween parade and fireworks display.

The 2018 Return of the Ancients festival had a budget of almost £400,000.

The city's famous walls came alive with skeletons, nuns, witches, fire and music.

"There's no limitation in terms of painting pumpkins, you've just got to get stuck in," says a Norfolk artist who has got involved in this year's Halloween trend of decorating rather than carving spooky creations.

The UK is set to spend more than £29m on pumpkins this Halloween with an estimated 10 million grown specifically for 31 October.

Painted and decorated pumpkins are "very trendy" and a perfect alternative for children that avoids the need to use knives, says artist and mum Kate Elgood.

"A painted pumpkin not only lasts longer than one you've cut into... and people talk about throwaway fashion, so this is actually a really good way to use a pair of stockings."
