Worried parents have slammed retailers including the Duchess of Cambridge’s parents for selling sickening Halloween costumes for young children.

High street shops and websites are marketing outfits at children that include Jack the Ripper, the possessed girl from horror movie The Exorcist, and a ‘dead pet’. The “inappropriate” costumes include a ‘roadkill’ bodysuit which is sold by Party Pieces, the company owned by Michael and Carole Middleton. But a study conducted by parenting site found that nearly half of parents believe costumes aimed at kids are now ‘too frightening’.
