Weatherman Alex Deakin carried his head under one arm as he delivered his assessment for the weather in towns and cities like Liverghoul, Lerwitch and Southaunton.

The spoof forecast – which did use the real temperatures and weather – was posted on Twitter by the Met Office, one of the most prominent forecasting companies in the UK.
It assured trick-or-treaters that the weather would mostly be fine and mild, but warned of thick purple cloud, and potentially even “blood rain” over parts of western Scotland.
