Stratford home owner has spooky skeleton in front garden, but it’s too shocking for some





IS it one spook too far or just a bit of Halloween fun?

A fake, bright red body on the grass in front of a house in Blackberry Lane, Stratford, caused both squeals of delight and tuts of disapproval this Halloween.

According to Amanda Barr, the creative whizz behind the gory display, the kids on a trick or treat visit tonight (31st October) loved it. However not everyone saw the funny side to the scary skeleton.

One resident told the Herald: “The fake burnt body is very graphic and disturbing. It is causing distress to the residents.” They added: “Last year she had a ‘body’ hanging outside her house.”

However Amanda maintained: “It’s meant to be a bit of scary Halloween fun and kids love it when they come to get their sweets for trick or treat.”

She went on to explain how she had gone to town making the Halloween spectacle by covering a plastic skeleton with clingfilm and then painting it, before carefully setting the scene with scorched elements and a petrol can.
