follows is not an interview it's the people relating their
experiences. I have edited out the actual words and rewritten
it in my own words.
sun bed, Mother was using the sun bed. The lights of which
usually burn with a yellow colour. Suddenly the lights became
much brighter and burned with a white light. Mother said aloud
as she jumped off the bed "oh god, I hope this aint gonna
catch fire!" as she said that her mobile went off, she had
the presence of mind to switch off the bed at the mains. She
checked her mobile and found that she had a message, containing
no return number which is unusual just text. The message said
"it will". She thinks this when things started to get worse...
Was shut in bathroom and couldn't get out, was in the bath
and the door slammed, no drafts where felt. Mother says her
bathroom window was opened just a crack for moisture escape.
Tried to open the door and couldn't. From this point the events
that are related are from futher back. They have decided to
start from the beginning. Mother states that when she ways
pregnant with her son that she and her friend used a oui'ja
board. When she lived in another house she saw a man on the
stairs, things would move and disappear. One thing that she
remembers clearly is money going missing, they searched the
house high and low for it including going through all the
cupboards in the house. The day they moved out the money turned
up in a food cupboard that had been searched before. The day
her dad died a picture came flying off the wall. In a different
street daughter 1 came to the top of the stairs screaming
with her hair standing on end, she had long hair and mother
states that her hair was stood up about a foot. Mother says
that daughter1 had said at the time she had seen something.
When a friend visited them when they were living in yet another
house something grabbed her at the top of the stairs.
It all started when they came home one day and daughter 1
said things have been happening in the house
Mothers words " furniture was on top of one another, telly
was turning on and off, then bulbs kept blowing, actually
saw it that night, don't know if it was the devil whatever.
When we was in bed there was things crawling across the ceiling,
some sort of animals teeth big eyes and growling, walls moving,
eyes on the wall, things looking over the bed, poking me.
When things was happening the room the walls were closing
in, we couldn't get out of the room, door wouldn't open. Daughter1
was sleep walking at the time. Could hear IT approaching climbing
up inside the wall like coming up stairs. The little man,
first time I saw him I was lying in bed and could hear the
black bag moving, I used to keep the ironing in a black bag.
When I looked there was little man on the bag, I closed my
eyes and said go away, when I looked again he was gone. The
next time I see it, I could hear it running across the landing,
when I went into the bathroom it was on the toilet seat playing
with the pot-pouri that was on the cistern.
Went to the church and the church carried out a requiem blessing.
That's when it started talking! Kept saying go away, go away,
that's all it kept saying. It went straight through me at
the bottom of the stairs; we had clawing and knocking on the
I had a medium out called Jack. He tried to put it right asked
me questions, told me what had happened with this woman, he
said she had brought something in with her, he couldn't cross
this line or something. It went from bad to worse, we had
an exorcism. It drove the car into the garage with no one
in it, what ever it was got into the car and drove it into
the garage. This was witnessed by a neighbour who thought
they had done it and was shocked when they came home and found
out that hadn't been in at the time the car moved.
We had the exorcism, on a Sunday it was I remember it, made
the kids go down their nans didn't want them there. When it
was done we thought well this it nice and calm we'll go out.
When we came back it told us to go away, it had made it worse!
I couldn't cope with it any more so we left. Mother mentions
her first husband here. Says he didn't believe it until he
was putting a video in and it bit his hand, they moved to
a new home and the husband said to Mother "I never believed
it but know I believe all you have told me I cant cope with
it and moved out".
Whilst in this home small things happened doors open and the
like nothing major. "Started getting worse when I moved into
yet again, that's when I kept smelling oil" I'm going to start
condensing what she says from here on.
Brother and his wife stayed, slept in back room. Brother woke
screaming and crying and tried to get of the room his wife
heard nothing. When she did wake he asked why she hadn't helped
him. He said he saw a dark figure at the end of the bed pulling
the quilt down and trying to get at him. This happened again
but this time his wife saw it too. Also in the back room a
face with red eyes was seen in a mirror.
The eldest daughter now tells how on several occasions she
was in bed and unable to move and on one occasion she felt
something having sex with her, she says after it had finished
it just went. She grabbed her child and fled the house and
phoned her dad from a telephone box, he found her sat in the
telephone box where she had made the call. The doctor confirmed
there was evidence of sexual intercourse but couldn't explain
The next house daughter1 moved into is the one she lives in
now. Her son had a red trike in his bed room. She was woken
by a squeaking sound and found his bike going round in circles
in his room. Then the noises started, banging's etc..and every
now and then she would be poked as if something was saying
here I am. The child now sleeps in his mum room because he
says there is a man in his room, Daughter 1 could hear talking
coming from her son's room when she investigated all his toys
where talking and moving, she called her mum and she saw it
as well then it just stopped. The toy that was talking (a
power ranger toy) had no battery in it. The toy is supposed
to say "earth will be mine" but was saying "you will be mine".
is very interesting to note that a lot of the stories related
on this tape are started by one person and finished by another;
people say the same things at the same time as well. I decided
to let them just talk rather than interviewing them at this
stage because they were obviously scared and worried. I took
Mothers husband to another room however and had an informal
chat with him about the occurrences he has been involved in.
he reports the same things in his own words, and is very shook
up by it all. I believe these people to be telling the truth.
Due to the nature of the alleged haunting it was decided that
we should get the family some help as soon as possible rather
than entering into full blown investigation as the husband
had been physically attacked and had had blood drawn. So I
immediately got in touch with Andrew Garley, a medium we have
used on investigations before, unfortunately Andrew thought
he wasn't right for this one so he put us in touch with another
group of mediums who operate under the name of Paranormal
Paradox (I am unaware of any website at this time). After
consulting the mediums it was decided that at no time should
the Mother re-enter the house until a clearance had been performed.
The family were informed of this and the Mother told me that
she needed some clothing from the house and would like to
go in. after a further consultation it was decided that I
would be the one to go in and get her clothes. I entered the
house during the afternoon of the following day fellow team
member outside in case I got into trouble. My first impression
of the house was not favourable. There was a definite feeling
of dread that permeated the entire building. I gathered the
needed clothing from the bedroom and the only thing that happened
whilst I was in the house was the sound of a low growl that
seemed to come out of the corner of the bedroom, (the room
where the husband had been scratched), I was not sorry to
leave the house!!!
It was several day later that we finally managed to get the
mediums into the area due to high winds. After consulting
with the family the mediums realised that all three women
had the gift of medium ship but were unaware of the fact,
this was considered an important point so the mediums proceded
to "close down" all three of them. It was explained that the
women had probably been attracting spirits and been able to
get rid of them, and that closing them down should stop the
spirits being attracted to them in the future. Once completed
we made our first foray into the house led by the mediums.
We took two digital video cameras 3 digital stills cameras
and an EMF meter along with 2 Dictaphones with us.
We made a sweep of the house and encountered several spirits
including a surprising amount of children who didn't like
it there. One of the UK Paranormal team had a strange encounter
upstairs with a female spirit who passed right through him
and then wouldn't leave him alone, he says that she kept saying
"please don't leave me here" over and over again and was holding
him around the waist. It should be noted that this happened
to who has to be the most sceptical member of the team.
After the sweep was completed the mediums held a sťance to
help move on the spirits who wanted to go, the ones who were
stubborn and didn't want to leave would be dealt with later.
The team left the house for a short time to regroup and gather
the women who had been affected the most ready for the expulsion
of the spirit who was considered to be the "ring leader".
The mediums had ascertained by now that he was an unsavoury
character that had an appetite for children in his earthly
life, hence the amount of child spirits that he had gathered
The women were brought into the house under the protection
of the mediums and the circle reformed with two of the women
in the centre and a third in the circle itself as she felt
safer there. It wasn't long however before the stress of the
situation got to her and she collapsed. She placed in the
centre with her family as support and the mediums began the
final part of the removal.
There was still the ringleader to be dealt with as well as
several spirits of children who had been to afraid to go during
the earlier circle. The mediums began by placing the house
under protection, starting from the attic and roof working
there way down through the building. This was done by placing
blue light through the building and over the doors and windows,
the idea being to force the malevolent spirit out of hiding
and into the circle where he could be moved on. He had other
ideas though and would not be forced, so one of the mediums
called on his Aunt from the other side to come and get him,
suddenly the brash and boastful spirit was reduced to an obedient
wretch as he obeyed with out question whatever his Aunt told
him to do, and he was finally expelled from the house.
All that remain was to move on the children that had remained
under his thrall for so long. This was accomplished in fairly
short order in the same manner as before. In one touching
moment one the children refused to go until she had said goodbye
to the youngest daughter of the afflicted family, telling
her through the medium that she had been there only friend
and that they would miss her. The protection of the house
was finished and the night wrapped up at this point.
We have since heard from the family again and apparently the
disturbances had started again in the way of nasty smells.
We visited once more but could find no evidence of any further
activity. We explained that after so long under this kind
of haunting it was going to take the residents a while not
to jump at every knock and creak etc. And under no circumstances
should they invite anything back. Unfortunately things continued
and I had no choice but to ask the family to contact the members
of the local spiritualist church and gave them the number
and name of the person to talk to. The family did get in touch
with the church and were consequently visited by two mediums
from there ranks who confirmed what we had told them. They
also informed the family that were two spirits now back in
the house and that it was the mother who couldn't let them
go and as consequence had invited the spirit back. The mediums
from the church told the three women that they needed training
to control the spiritual abilities they had and until they
had received this training it was pointless moving the spirit
on as would just be invited back again.
It is the opinion of this investigator that the family are
now trying to gain financially from this situation and as
such have no choice but to break all contact with them.
Paranormal do not investigate for financial gain but to further
research into the paranormal, and where possible to help people
with problems of a paranormal nature. We make no claims to
able rid any property of any haunting real or imagined and
leave that to the mediums. I personally have no doubt that
when we began this little adventure the people in question
needed help, but the fact they now seem to want to exploit
the situation for there own financial ends, means that they
have in our eyes lost much of the credibility they have in
future claims to paranormal happenings, this in no way infers
that they are lying just that we have take whatever they say
with a pinch of salt. From the outset UK Paranormal and the
group of mediums counselled against any form of media involvement
as in our opinion this could just make a bad situation worse,
such a fantastic story was bound to attract the attention
of the media and as children are involved here (both of the
family involved and of the investigation team) such attention
would have damaging in the extreme.
