Supermarkets including Sainsbury's and Morrisons slash price of Halloween costumes in half

SUPERMARKETS including Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Lidl have slashed the price of kids Halloween costumes ahead of fright night.

The spooky event may not be the same as normal but there's nothing stopping you from getting dressed up to mark the occasion anyway.

Trick or treating is on the cardsfor children in Tiers 1 and 2 lockdown after Downing Street gave the nod yesterday as long as they follow the rules.

Unfortunately, kids in Tier 3 local lockdown won't be able to carry out the tradition amid a ban on households mixing.

But families can still celebrate All Hallows' Eve at home by putting on their creepiest outfit and trying out some of these devilishly delicious treats.

Many retailers have slashed the price of costumes this year by up to 96%.
