Which is perhaps unfortunate for anyone trying to prove that Wellington Indoor Market is haunted.
A ‘probably explainable’ video has been posted on YouTube, sort of showing what could possibly be construed as a ghost-like figure making its way up the stairs and pulling some boxes over in the Victorian building in Telford, Shropshire.
The events were captured at 2.22am on May 4, according to Town and Country Markets, which posted the video. Though the time and date – much like the ghost – can’t be seen just before the boxes fall.
Market manager Kay Boaky is certainly a believer. Kay said after finding boxes all over the floor that morning, they went straight to CCTV to see if there had been an intruder.
‘We couldn’t believe what we saw. All the hairs stood up on the back of my neck,’ Kay told the Shropshire Star.
‘There was nobody there when the boxes fell off. We watched it again and we could see the shadow walking up the stairs then chucking the boxes over.’
The video, which asks ‘did you see it?’, has sparked some comments.
‘i dont see a damn thing’, replied viewer john simmons.
Nevertheless, this is not the first time ghostly goings on have been talked about at this market. There have also been reports of a ghost, possibly with clean hands, a bit of a cold and a short temper.
‘Once there were two people alone in the market,’ said Kay.
‘They were talking when they heard coughing coming from the other side of the building. They thought there must be someone else there but when they looked around it was totally empty.
‘We also have times where the hand-dryer starts on its own or doors slam.’
PJ Godsell, from investigators Mercia Paranormal, described the video as ‘quite interesting’.
‘My initial reactions from watching the video is that this is probably explainable.
‘But we would never say 100 per cent that it is not paranormal.’
