A face of a 900-year-old 'vampire' has been brought back to life.

The face was rekindled with 3D technology after a skeleton was found impaled with a wooden stake. It is believed that the remains were found by builders in El Kovice, Czech Republic in 1966 in a non-traditional graveyard alongside several other bodies which are thought to have been killed in anti-vampire rituals.

The builders reportedly found some of the bodies lying in unnatural positions, some on their front and some on their side, with their hands tied behind their backs. A scientist named Cicero Moraes reconstructed the face to mark the 50th anniversary of the excavation.

The 3D graphics designer based in Brazil said: "This was a really interesting project to work on as the skull was in a good preserved state, so building the features was relatively straightforward."

"As the face begun to emerge, I saw it was a 35-year-old man who had strong characteristics and was reasonably well-built at the time of his death," he added.

Rylan Clark-Neal couldn't feel his lips after trying the UK's hottest pizza.

The This Morning presenter was doing his bit to help launch supermarket Morrisons' Hotter Than Hell pizza for Halloween during his presenting slot last Friday and was left frantically looking for water.

The pizza is aimed at chilli lovers who get a kick out of the heat and includes Naga Viper, which is one of the world's hottest chilies, said to be a million to 200 times spicier than Tabasco sauce and 200 times hotter than a jalapeOo. Those who take on the challenge are expected to experience a tingling tongue which will eventually go numb, making talking difficult.

A burning sensation is expected to follow, from the mouth to the throat, while eyes and nose will start to run. It is believed that most people will become hot and sweaty as the spices kick in. The sensation is said to last for 15 minutes - after which some people may feel euphoric.
