Revellers braved the autumn chill last night as they wore fancy dress for a big night out to celebrate Halloween.

Photographs taken on the streets of Portsmouth, Leeds, Birmingham and Newcastle yesterday showed young party animals dressed in an array of colourful spooky outfits on a wet and cold evening as they marked October 31.

More than 5,000 students in the Hampshire city enjoyed a 'Halloween Block Party' which took place across five venues including The Astoria, Popworld, Mr Miyagi's and The Fleet with DJ Sub Focus playing at the Guildhall.

The last club in Portsmouth closed at 5am this morning, so some will no doubt struggle to get to any early lectures. 

The evening started off dry but soon became very wet as revellers got into the ghoulish spirit.
