A Hull house appeared on national television on Friday night, as paranormal investigators attempted to find some ghostly goings on.
The team spent a day and night in the semi-detached house, located towards the Beverley Road end of the west Hull street, and not only heard things go bump in the night but also a portal in another world.
Andrew Yates, owner of the house, told the three investigators of his experiences while living there, including children appearing from within the walls and women being strangled with their scarves while walking around the house.
Now a venue for popular paranormal events, the Help! Team set about finding what they could.
The first experience showed psychic Chris Fleming hearing a child yell.
He said: “I can hear a child yelling. Do you want to go home?
“There’s a male spirit in this house that doesn’t want these children to leave. This little girl is telling me to be careful of the mirrors, because there are others here that shouldn’t be.”
With terror-inducing dolls hanging from the walls of the spare bedroom, he said: “I don’t like this room, I’m getting chills. This house feels like a macabre theme park, and these possessed dolls are conduits for demonic and mischievous entities.”
Meanwhile Barri Ghai, a tech expert, went to Hull Marina to speak with author Mark Riley, where they discussed the water surrounding Hull being an energy conductor of the energy for one of the malevolent sprits in the De Grey Street house.
Tales were also told of the house being a former foster home, with some of the 15 to 20 child spirits being murdered by the adults living there.
Back in one of the upstairs rooms, Chris said: “I know you’re in here. I’m not going to hurt you. I didn’t come here to hurt you.
“I have to protect myself so I’m going to be stern. I know I get frustrated if you don’t talk to me. I’m here to help you.”
With that, he claims a “great white shadow” flew across the floor in front of him, and he said: “It’s going to be a dangerous night ahead of us.”
Later on in the evening, Barri took a picture of a mirror, which proved to hide something “incredible”.
With screams of “Oh my god”, the team explained the mirror was a portal for “ghost attacks”.
Chris said: “Oh my god, that’s the portal. Can you see these arms trying to get in? That’s unbelievable. I clocked those mirrors early.
“My worst fears have become a reality. These portals are an open door for a spirit attack. If we are to see daybreak we must work on a strategy.
“There is some violent poltergeist activity.”
After truth-seeker Sandy Lakdar spent several minutes in the house completely by herself, where footsteps were heard and she had to leave the house crying, the paranormal activity in the house seemingly picked up, with moving wires and apparent anomalies attached to a dolls in wardrobes.
In one room, Chris asked the child spirts to reach out to him.
He said: “I know there are some negative spirits and entities here, too. It’s getting really cold around my hand. They’re making contact, one, two, three. This is beautiful. I’ve got multiple child spirits touching my hand.
“There are five on my hand. I’m starting to get a little emotional. When you feel other people’s sadness it’s hard.”
After wrapping up for the evening, the team all agreed this was one house and investigation they would not be forgetting anytime soon.
Barry said: “Tonight has been an emotional rollercoaster. We’ve felt oppressed, sadness, excitement, a whole plethora of emotions.
“We won’t be forgetting this investigation anytime soon.”
