Some of the spooky changes:

Nottingham Trent University – Nottingham Trent Woo-niversary

Nottingham High School – Nottingham High Ghoul

Old Market Square – Old Market Scare

NG One – NG Boo

The move has proved popular with commuters across Nottingham who say they have enjoyed spotting the name changes during their daily journeys:
