Haunted house opens creaky door

A family has gone Halloween crazy and decorated their home from top to bottom in spooky decorations.

Not content with a Jack O’Lantern or the odd skeleton, The Harris family - mum Michelle, dad Colin and children Lauren, 14 and Sydnee, 11, have made a haunted house of their Made Feld home in Stevenage.

After a break last year, the annual scary sight in Bedwell is back in its full gory glory to raise funds for charity.

Michelle, who inherited a love for the ghoulish festival from her American dad, said they hope to raise hundreds of pounds for Marie Curie Cancer Care in donations from visitors. In 2009 the display raised �400 for the charity.
