Britons ready with Halloween treats

More than 40% of people have prepared for Halloween by purchasing confectionery for trick or treaters, a survey found.

Figures show that two in five British people have purchased sweets and chocolates ready for knocks on their doors on Sunday night.

In a YouGov questionnaire for Sainsbury's, 16% of people admitted that they dim the lights and do not answer the door on October 31.

The supermarket predicts sales of costumes, party accessories and themed foods are expected to exceed £10 million this year.
