A woman who insists that her house is haunted by a poltergeist has released a video clip of eerie happenings in her family home.
The petrified Manning family from Coventry started witnessing out-of-the-ordinary events two weeks after settling into the council-rented home last year.

She has since had to resort to exorcism to get rid of the ghostly problem after noticing lights switching on and off, pots moving, drawers opening and doors slamming shut. >> READ MORE
FOR more than 40 years, the grave remained undisturbed at the foot of a block of residential flats.
It was discovered on Monday when excavating works were carried out for HDB's lift upgrading programme. The tombstone indicated that the deceased, Madam Sim Seok Inn, died in 1971 at the age of 83.
Some clothes were found buried near the coffin. Some residents of Block 711, Yishun Avenue 5, were a little alarmed by the discovery of the tomb.
Mr Zali H M, 57, feels that while it was nothing to worry about, he would still try to avoid the area.
"I will walk away from the lift. Maybe walk around it," said the retiree. >> READ MORE
