Bizarre In The News - Who you gonna call? Family send in paranormal experts after 'capturing ghost' in home video

A spooked family have called in a real-life 'ghostbuster' - after claiming to have captured on video a poltergeist moving a chair across a bedroom.   
Lisa Manning and her children Ellie, 11, and Jaydon, six, have fled their house in terror several times because of bizarre goings-on.
They include pots and pans being thrown around the kitchen, window blinds moving up and down by themselves, lights being switched on and off and drawers being opened.
Now they have been advised to wear crucifixes by a priest after capturing video footage of a chair moving by itself in Ellie's bedroom.
Carer Miss Manning, 34, shot the film two weeks ago after putting hidden cameras in the family's home in Holbrooks, an area of Coventry.
The 52-second clip shows a wardrobe door opening before a pink swivel chair moves slowly backwards towards the wall.
While cynics might scoff and suggest the chair could have been moved by a length of strategically placed fishing line, Miss Manning is adamant the footage proves a ghost exists. 
She said she feels like she is 'living in a scary movie'.
Miss Manning, who lives with her partner Anthony, 25, in the house, added: 'One medium came in and said our house is a portal, a kind of bus stop for spirits, which they use to pass into our world.
'I set up the video camera because I wanted to prove the ghost exists.
'I couldn't believe it when I played the tape back, it sent chills up my spine.

  1. Skeptic. Give me some footage of a clear room with no obstacles and no where to hide with a FULL view of the room, and I may take some notice. These videos always show a chair moving from one side of the room, to a conveniently located niche on the other side of the room.

    And anyway, the term 'poltergeist' is used in the wrong context here I believe. I'm unsure what one would get out of dragging a chair and opening and closing a door. Aren't they more aggressive? More violent in their movement?

    That's my two cents.

  2. I tend to agree with you D. I am skeptical too. You can't see the bottom of the chair or the floor. I guess i'd have to be there or see more evidence?

    As for poltergeist activity? I don't think activity necessarily has to be violent or aggressive to be considered a poltergeist?

    Please someone correct me if I am wrong :)
