Cumbria crime author Matt Hilton spooked by 'paranormal activity'
Last updated at 11:33, Friday, 06 December 2013
A crime writer has revealed he was so spooked by suspected supernatural activity that he had to move home.
Former policeman Matt Hilton was living in a large Victorian house when strange happenings occurred. Now he’s using that experience as the basis of a new book – and has opened his mind to the possibility of paranormal activity elsewhere.
The author, from Abbeytown, near Silloth, insists he still takes sceptic’s approach when hearing stories about strange goings on.
But the 48-year-old has established his own group to conduct investigations and is looking for locations they could investigated.
He said: “We will do our best to offer alternative natural explanations, in the hope that what is left over or unexplainable is, in fact, paranormal.”
Matt says he has been open-minded about the possibility of places being haunted since the experiences he and his wife had 26 years ago.
“We experienced quite a lot of paranormal activity in the house – to the point where we gave up and left,” he said.

Much of the activity they experienced was the likes of unexplained bangs and items moving.
“My wife had nightmares. It frightened us,” Matt added..
“The group I’ve set up is looking for anyone who would like us to come in and do an investigation.”
