‘It’s making children cry’: Police tell man to tone down annual charity Halloween display in honour of his grandmother

James Creighton was 'shocked' when police officers knocked on the door of his Stevenage home. He creates the annual display to raise money for Cancer Research UK in memory of his gran Betty, who died in 2009

A Halloween fan who put up a gruesome display of ‘disembowelled corpses’ outside his home has been asked by police to tone it down.

James Creighton, 25, was told that his scene was making children cry with its macabre reconstruction of a scene from The Texas Chainshaw Massacre.

He has put the display up outside his house in Stevenage to raise funds for charity every year since his grandmother died in 2009.
