Poltergeist activity is said to be taking place at council offices in Boston - with staff reporting the presence of a ‘shadowy figure’ and objects being thrown about.
One member of staff at Boston Borough Council’s
110-year-old Municipal Building in West Street is refusing to work alone
in an office there, unless the door is propped open.
Four female staff at the environmental operations office have reported the ghostly goings-on.
have included a shadowy figure appearing behind them, then
disappearing, glass thrown to the floor, a kettle switching itself on
and disk drawers on PCs opening when they are switched off,
in the adjoining building control officer heard Kayleigh Wagg scream
when she turned from making herself a coffee to be confronted by a
shadowy figure which was standing behind her. She had been alone in the
office at the time.
“I sometimes get a creepy feeling and there
are cold spots in the office,” she said. “I turned from the fridge after
making a coffee and in front of me was this dark figure. I screamed and
it just disappeared.
“The office is often really cold even though
we have good heating. I don’t like to be here on my own now. And if I
am I keep the door open with a chair. I never believed in ghosts, but
I’m not so sure now.”
Colleague Emma Butler said her computer
disk drawer had popped open, even when the machine had been switched
off. And she said a glass, which had been placed well away from the edge
of the fridge, had smashed to the ground.
