A British weather presenter gave his daily forecast while apparently headless to mark Halloween.

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.
