The eerie scenes in Cardiff city centre on Halloween

The streets are usually filled with revellers in spooky fancy dress but it was a different story for 2020

Halloween is usually a time when city centres are jam-packed with people wearing over-the-top fancy dress costumes as they mark October 31.

It's usually a busy date for local nightspots as they put on Halloween-themed parties to celebrate all things ghoulish.

But while the streets of Cardiff had an eerie feel on Saturday night it was for a completely different reason.

With Wales in the middle of a two-week fire-break lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, pubs, clubs and restaurants were all closed so the streets of the Welsh capital were hauntingly empty.

Our photographer paid a visit between 6pm and 7pm, a time when shoppers are usually heading home and revellers are flocking to the pubs, but this year it was a very different story...
