WATCH: Ghost hunters believe this footage shows ghoul girl stalking pub where she died

DOES this spooky video show the ghost of a seven-year-old girl haunting the historic pub where she died?

 

The GSI Family caught what they believe is their best paranormal sighting yet while spending the night at The Fox Inn, a 300-year-old pub in Guisborough, Cleveland.

In the footage, the paranormal investigators pan a night vision camera around a room of the pub, capturing what appears to be a small black figure which walks to the left of a lit area before vanishing.

And medium Neil Cook, who discovered the spooky sight while going through the footage days later, believes it is the spirit of a little girl called Jennifer who died outside the pub in a tragic accident in the late 1800s.

Ex-bouncer and father-of-one Mr Cook, from Saltburn-by-the-Sea, North Yorks, said: “I do believe what we saw was Jennifer’s spirit.

 

“Sometimes a spirit wants to show themselves and tell their story because they are stuck on earth in limbo.

“Paranormal investigation is a history lesson and I think Jennifer just wanted to give us this history lesson and tell us the full story of the events of her life.

“I was absolutely blown away when I saw the footage, we all were. We have spent years looking for this kind of intelligent response.

“After I have listened to a spirit’s story I always try to send them off towards the light and tell them they do not have to be here, now their story is told they can move on to a better place.”

Mr Cook and his team, GSI Family: West Yorks and North East, first visited The Fox Inn in June last year after landlord Michael Crane asked them to investigate guests’ complaints of unexplained activity and feelings of sadness in one of the pub’s hotel rooms.Former security worker Mr Cook knew Mr Crane, 23, from previously working the doors at the historic coaching inn, which was built in the late 1700s.

In the hotel room, Mr Cook said he was shown something traumatic had happened before witnessing the spirit of the pub’s former housekeeper in the 1890s, Margaret, attacked in that room in a violent struggle.

On the stairs outside the room he said he sensed a small girl, seven-year-old Jennifer, who he believes was Margaret’s daughter and would sit waiting for her mother while she carried out her duties.

The team placed electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) recorders all over the pub and at the end of the night were in the bar area discussing Margaret and Jennifer when the equipment picked up what they believe is Jennifer’s voice saying ‘mother’.

GSI Family returned to the pub this summer and when Mr Cook touched the stone steps outside the inn – an original historic feature there to allow guests to mount horses or enter carriages – he claims he felt a crushing feeling in his head and torso.Mr Cook thinks Jennifer was playing on these steps while waiting for her mother when she fell and was trapped between the inn’s wall and a passing coach, suffering injuries which killed her.

Later the same evening at about 8.30pm, the ghost hunters were in an upstairs stairwell when they claim they witnessed unexplained flashing light coming from downstairs so Mr Cook and investigator Shane Corbett, 32, went downstairs to take a closer look.

Mr Corbett panned a hand-held night vision camera around and the pair did not notice anything at the time but later spotted what appears to be a black figure walking across the room lit up by a green fire escape light behind a window.They believe this is footage of Jennifer herself.

Middlesbrough-born Mr Cook, a full-time psychic, said: “When Shane and I went downstairs to investigate the light anomalies I was taking to him about Jennifer and I could feel her energy running back and forth in the bar area.

“We didn’t see her at the time because Shane was looking around the room rather than through the lens.

“But over the next couple of days when we were going through the camera footage we realised Jennifer had shown herself on the camera.

“Shane and I were the only people in that room and the green light visible is glow from the pub foyer’s fire escape light in the background.”It can’t be one of our shadows because the light would have had to be behind us. There is no explanation, whatever it was was actually within the room.

“I think the light anomalies were Jennifer wanting to bring us down.”

Landlord Mr Crane, who took over The Fox Inn aged just 21, said: “I personally am not a believer but there were a couple of things that night – like when we saw those big flashes of light, no one knew how to explain that.

“You can see something in the footage, a dark shadow.

“Guests had reported things in one of the hotel rooms Neil investigated – lights turning on and off and a cup from the bathroom appearing in the middle of the floor.”
