HOVE, England, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- A Hove, England, man said his landlord ordered him to take down his $1,200 Halloween display because it was too scary for neighborhood children.
Graham Walls, 28, said his landlord, Estate and Property Management, sent him a letter ordering him to take down the life-size skeletons, zombies and witches he had displayed outside of his apartment, The Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.
The letter said Walls had "defaced" the building and caused complaints from tenants whose children were afraid of the decorations, Walls said.
"Last year I put them up for the first time and had no complaints, but that was a different property management company," Walls said of his decorations. "It's just a bit of fun. I thought with all the horror shows that kids are exposed to these days there wouldn't be a problem with these decorations. It's sad to have to take them down as so many people thought they were great."
