All Halloween celebrations have been cancelled by a supposedly haunted Kent hamlet.

According to a notice on the Pluckley parish council website, the disturbance caused by hundreds of annual visitors means that there will be no official entertainment this year, The Daily Telegraph reports.

The statement read: "There will be no entertainment provided for visitors. There will be no barbecue, no hog roast, no beer tent, no fun fair and there will be no ghost tours.

"In fact, unless you are coming for a quiet drink, may we suggest you visit one of the many other attractions in Kent for Halloween."

Parish council clerk Jackie Grebby said: "When we've tried to lay on something before it has backfired. The whole village has been gridlocked.

"There is in fact very little to do in Pluckley apart from have a quiet drink. People are very welcome if they just want to come for a quiet drink."

The village is said to be 'haunted' by 12 ghosts, including those of a schoolmaster, monk and highwayman.
