Televisions crews, psychics and paranormal investigators have been flocking to a store in Gloucester, England, that seems to have video proof of the existence of ghosts.
After finding the store a mess one morning staff at Poundstretcher on Eastgate Street examined CCTV footage of the night before.
What shocked them was the sight of a ghostly figure of a Victorian woman pushing a whole pallet of goods to the ground.
A bit of research shows that the shop stands on the site of an old Theatre – The Theatre Royal, later known as The Palace. It was first opened in 1791 and closed in 1922.
There have been previous stories of a haunting in the building. One such tale tells of a young woman who, it’s said, took her own life, and was found hanging from a piece of theatre equipment beneath the stage.
It’s the ghost of this poor woman who staff claim to have captured on camera.
The deputy manageress of Poundstretcher, Sue Cooper, told us it’s not the first time she’s come into close contact with the apparition. She said, “You can often feel her presence, sometimes you can feel an icy cold. You can feel a gagging or choking, especially downstairs in the cellar.”
