American ghostbusters camp out at 'haunted' Cumbrian pub

A Cumbrian pub which was last year at the centre of a spooky mystery has been probed by paranormal investigators from the US.

The Wolfe pub in Little Dockray attracted national publicity after the News & Star revealed how its CCTV cameras had captured weird and inexplicable goings on in the dead of night.

The footage showed a pulsating ball of light descending through the ceiling, moving around and then flying off at high speed.

At one point, part of the shape appeared to reach out and move rapidly just above a table as if polishing it.

The mystery deepened when it emerged security cameras at the Thomas Cook travel agents next door had captured weird goings on at night.

A computer appeared to turn itself on as a sign fell out of a window.

Speaking yesterday, the Wolfe’s manager Julia Templeton, 35, said customers still talk about the video.

She said: “We were visited by a team of people from an American sci-fi TV channel who wanted to make a programme about it.

“There was a team of around 20 people and they stayed to do investigations for three nights, over Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. They did all sorts of experiments, though they didn’t tell us what the results were. They said we’d have to watch the programme when it is broadcast in January.

“They were also visiting other haunted places elsewhere in the country.”

Fortunately, since the light ball incident last year, Julia said she was not aware of any further weird happenings.

She added: “A lot of people come in and talk about it, and though I haven’t seen anything untoward I believe there is something there.”
