HAUNTED spirits were not dampened by the wet weather for this year’s Guy Carnival extravaganza.

Vampires, zombies and ghouls took to the streets of Harwich on Saturday night to be part of the town’s traditional carnival.

Crowds lined the route to watch the Harwich Rotary Club’s procession of floats, dance troops and famous Big Heads.

Wendy Taylor-Jones, who makes the Big Heads, said hundreds of people came to celebrate the carnival.
