The rattle of chains and midnight howls aren't exactly unusual noises to hear on a ghost train.

But there were a few unwelcome bumps in the night when a group of youngsters boarded a brand new ride on the Meadows and stole £5,000 worth of equipment.

Included in their haul were several expensive costumes, a skeleton, spooky masks and a giant spider.

The fairground ride, which has a Pirates of the Caribbean theme, was on site for the Meadows Festival this weekend, but is now short of ten pieces of special equipment.
