CCTV security footage captures moving chair and table inside Essex’s historic Brookside Theatre

CCTV video footage taken from inside the Brookside Theatre in Romford, Essex, England during the middle of the night appears to show a chair and table moving by themselves. The security footage was shot around 4:15 AM on July 27, 2014. Theater manager Jai Sepple decided to review the security footage after he arrived inside the theater on Sunday morning and noticed one of the chairs had been moved out of position during the night.  Sepple was the last to leave the theater on Saturday night and had carefully straightened all the chairs before heading home.  Sepple was stunned at what he found on the security video. “We’ve had so many strange things happen over the years but this has to be the freakiest. When I looked

Terrified professional cricket players refuse to stay at London’s haunted Langham Hotel

England’s ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) cricket players are convinced that their five-star central London hotel is haunted. Reports from England this week reveal several players have requested to switch rooms and their wives have refused to stay at the world-renowned Langham Hotel after players and their families experienced strange noises, lights and water faucets turning on by themselves, and ghostly spirits wandering the hallways of the legendary haunted hotel. ECB player Stuart Broad told reporters his paranormal encounter left him sleepless: “It was so hot in the room I just couldn’t sleep. All of a sudden the taps in the bathroom came on for no reason. I turned the lights on and the taps turned themselves off. Then when I turned the lights off again

Nowhere to run – family car catches on fire inside safari park’s Lion enclosure

The Clements family, mother Helen and her two children, found themselves in an unusual, and harrowing situation this week after their car caught on fire during a visit to the Longleat Safari Park, a drive-through safari park in Wiltshire, England. With horribly bad timing, their car burst into flames while the family was parked inside the lion enclosure watching the lions.  Clements told reporters: “It could have been in the flamingos or the camels but no, it had to be in the lion enclosure.” The family believes the car caught on fire while they were parked because it overheated. Initially Clements believed the smoke was steam but as it darkened, she realized the car was on fire. She sounded the car’s horns and began to exit the vehicle when

Weather experts baffled after mysterious black ring appears in skies above England

16-year-old Georgina Heap was playing tennis with her mother on Friday evening, April 11, 2014 when she looked up at the sky and noticed a mysterious black ring floating high in the air. She grabbed her iPhone and quickly snapped a picture. The huge black ring was spotted in the skies above Leamington Spa, a spa town in central Warwickshire, England, and remained in sky for about three minutes before disappearing completely (or “burning off”).  Weather experts are baffled by what they describe as a "real-life X-Files" event. The giant black ring resembles an extremely well-defined smoke ring but police said there were no reports of fires in the area at the time of the sighting. Weather experts are baffled, and say the clearly-defined black ring

British student comes forward with close-range account of troll-like creature chasing train

A 25-year-old British student has reported what he describes as “a troll looking creature” chasing after a train that was travelling through flooded fields towards London.  The lad said that at first, he thought the creature was a “fat bloke running through the soggy fields, water up to his knees”.  As the creature neared the slow-moving train, he was able to observe it at close range. “I thought it was a person… until it got closer to the train.  We were going at a very slow speed because of the surrounding water.  It wasn’t a man.  I don’t know what that was but it had hair all over the body, and a bald face and chest.  The eyes reminded me of a gorilla’s but it had

British airline captain reports near-miss with cigar-shaped UFO near London’s Heathrow Airport

A recently released airline investigative report has revealed that a British airline pilot reported a near-miss with a UFO that occurred last July near Heathrow Airport in London.  The pilot, who was the supervising captain of the flight, said the incident occurred while his Airbus A320 (the flight number was not revealed to the public) was cruising at 32,000 feet around 20 miles west of Heathrow Airport.  The pilot described the UFO as a “cigar or rugby ball-shaped”, bright silver, and metallic in construction.  He state that the UFO passed within a few feet of the top of his passenger jet.  The pilot reported the incident to authorities telling them that he was certain the object, which was travelling at “great speed”, was going to

British: Dead MI6 agent found padlocked inside own gym bag probably a self-inflicted accident

In a classic WTF moment, the ruling on the death of MI6 espionage agent Gareth Williams has been changed. Originally the secret code breaker's death was ruled a “unnatural and likely criminally meditated act” after his lifeless body was found stuffed inside his own padlocked gym bag. Now British police say that Williams’ death was “most probably” an accident. Williams’ naked and decomposing remains were found inside his locked sports gym bag in the empty bathtub of his Security Service safe house apartment in Pimlico, London on August 23, 2010 after coworkers reported the GCHQ code-breaker had been out of contact for several days. The case has baffled British investigators because post-mortem tests consistently failed to produce any credible DNA traces — or even evidence that

River Thames residents puzzled by sudden appearance of mysterious red letterbox

Residents of Sonning-on-Thames, Berkshire say they are mystified by the appearance of a red letterbox (postal mailbox) that has appeared on a buttress on the downstream side of a bridge which crosses the River Thames. Uri Geller (the famous spoon-bending psychic), who has lived in the village for over 33 years, said he had "never seen anything like it". Royal Mail spokesperson Val Bodden was also puzzled by the mailbox’s sudden appearance on the bridge’s pillar. The letterbox is located approximately midway on the bridge and only accessible by persons in a motorboat. "The recent appearance of a postbox frontage on the side of the river bridge at Sonning is a mystery to us. It is certainly not an operational posting facility and we have no knowledge

Dracula returns – landslide at St. Mary’s Church sends gory human bodies tumbling into the town below

St. Mary’s Church in the English town of Whitby, the clifftop church and adjoining graveyard that inspired Bram Stoker’s 1897 Dracula novel, is once again scaring the hell out of people.  Heavy rain and a busted drainage pipe have led to landslides at the tourist attraction which caused gory human remains to tumble down on the houses and businesses below.  The landslide opened up graves in the ancient cemetery allowing the macabre debris to slither down into the city. This is the second time this year that the cliff and cemetery have experienced slides that released dead bodies. The human remains are being collected and reinterred at the cemetery. The Rev David Smith, canon of St Mary’s church, attempted to alleviate concern explaining that the cemetery had not been

Guildford Ghost photograph remains one of the most convincing ghost pictures in history

The Guildford Ghost Photograph Guildford, located in the United Kingdom, is considered to be one of the most haunted places on earth.  Visit the town center any night of the week and you’ll find several “ghost tours” where locals will take you on a walk about the city while pointing out the many haunted locations scattered throughout the town.  Don't dismiss their stories too fast - there is evidence that bolsters their claims. Guildford has produced one of the most convincing pieces of ghostly evidence in history - a picture that has confounded experts.  The general consensus is that the picture is real and untouched.  Amateur photographer, Mark Baker, 37, who took the picture, has no idea what the figure is and insists that the picture has not been

The burning Wem Town Hall ghost – ghost of calm little girl appears amongst the flames

Wem Town Hall, a building in the market-town of Wem in Shropshire, England, was destroyed by fire on November 19, 1995.  During the fire, Tony O’Rahilly, a amateur photographer, took pictures of the burning building from across the road (police had stopped him and would not allow him to get any closer). To his surprise, after the photo had been developed, in the doorway of an upper floor, appeared a young girl standing calmly, staring directly at the camera, seemingly unaffected by the flames burning all around her. Fire ravaged the town hall once before, in 1677 when a 14-year-old girl, Jane Churm, dropped a lit candle.  It has always been maintained that the Town Hall was haunted by the young girl.  This led to local speculation that

Crop Circles

Introduction Crop circles appear to be a relatively new phenomena, the first reports occurring during the early 1980’s in Wiltshire, England. The first crop circles discovered were almost always circular or elliptical in shape. During their peak in the early 1990’s they began to demonstrate more complex shapes and often a combination of several shapes causing them to be referred to as ‘pictograms’. Formed by the crushing or flattening of grain stalks, they seem to most often form a night. The flattened area is inevitably laid out in a spiral fashion from the center outwards, though more complex variations are occasionally reported - circles formed by flattened layers, plant stalks that are braided together, even formations where each stalk appears to be

The Canvey Island Monster

The Discovery In August of 1954, a man stumbled upon a strange, lifeless creature covered in seaweed on the shores of Canvey Island, Great Britain.  After carefully examining the animal, he was certain it was unlike any creature he had ever seen.  It appeared to be a marine animal but strangely exhibited some land-bearing animal characteristics - it had feet and legs! Two zoologists were called in to make a professional evaluation of the creature.  Photographs were taken of the animal which must have stood around 2 1/2 feet tall with 5 toes arranged in a 'U' shape and a concave arch.  It had thick, brownish skin and two protruding eyes.  They agreed that this was some unknown species of animal. 

The Devil’s Footprints

Footprints in the News Although documentation is sketchy, we do know that something extremely strange occurred in Topsham England on 02/07/1855.  Townspeople were shocked when they awoke to find unexplained footprints covering their yards, gardens, streets, and even roofs of their homes.  Although other reports of unknown tracks are known to exist, this incident proved to be most unexplainable.  The Times of London printed the following article on February 16, 1855. Considerable sensation has been evoked in he towns of Topsham, Lympstone, Exmouth, Teignmouth, and Dawlish, in the south of Devon, in consequence of the discovery of a vast number of foot tracks of a most strange and mysterious description. The superstitious go so far as to believe that they

Rendlesham Forest UFO event near Royal Air Force base in Suffolk (1980)

Introduction to Rendlesham Forest Rendlesham Forest is located in Eastern England near the Royal Air Force Base at Woodbridge, Suffolk.  Nearby is another RAF base - Bentwaters.  The two bases are separated by a small strip of woods called Rendlesham Forrest.  Both bases are renowned for their unusual military activities and top secret research - mustard gas was tested near these bases during the earlier World Wars.  Top secret radar experiments (code named Cobra Mist) were conducted here too.  Both bases, known as the "twin bases", are leased to United States military. On the night of December 26, 1980, a Soviet satellite was schedule to crash into the atmosphere and burn up on entry.  Two days later, December 28, 1980, another Soviet military satellite was to break
