Leslie Winters visited with his grandchildren.

He said: "It was very scary. My grandchildren nearly jumped out of their skin. It was great fun to be there. It was the place to be for Halloween."

Owner of Eye 2 Eye in Bushey Heath, Dipesh Patel, said: "We decided to do this as a launch. It was an amazing success, phenomenal. The kids loved it. We did not expect the turnout. This was a party for Bushey Heath."

"We've done events like this previously in Harrow and it's always been welcomed.
