Dog House Blog, Police Get Ghost Busted!
During Halloween, witches, ghosts and ghouls regularly roam the streets and needless to say the police will be gearing up to investigate a number of spooky happenings. The police in the past have received hundreds of calls from freaked out Brits who are convinced they are being haunted, chased by zombies and stalked by ghouls and vampires. Previous emergency calls have included reports of a poltergeist stealing car and house keys and a devil possessing a doll. Opps Chucky is back again! Among the 26 calls to Gloucestershire Police was one from a woman saying a poltergeist had locked her out of her home after she returned from dinner at a pub. Maybe it was less poltergeist activity and more to do with ‘spirits’ consumed. There were reports of zombies roaming across fields and even one of werewolves trying to break down a front door. Police investigating the zombie incident in Wales discovered it was actually the set of a horror film being shot at Pembrey, Carmarthenshire. One caller demanded the police send ‘Ghostbusters’ round seemingly unaware that it was a hit 1980s film and not real. Was that because there was something strange in the neighbourhood we ask? Norfolk is a popular bloodsucking area with five reported sightings of vampires and Merseyside police were called seven times with reports of ghosts and witches. Lincolnshire Police logged five incidents involving vampires, two concerning werewolves, nine involving zombies and 20 calls about wizards. Harry Pot Head again! Officers in the West Midlands dealt with 57 sightings of ghosts. The ghosts at properties had been nothing more than shadows on the walls. Needless to say most spooked callers were told to stop drinking and go back to bed.
