It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route to find out what really happened.

I don't know what's worse, the people calling in pranks or the people that actually believe that witches wear the traditional black garb and pointy hat.

I wonder if the report times line up with when the pubs close?

Figures revealed by a Freedom of Information (FOI) request
http://www.bbc.com/n...415527 request

Why would any one want to request this, its all over You Tube and many even get on UM.

Maybe I will add up the number of paranormal activity "experience" threads on here. If anyone requires the information on my results, please follow the following:

3. How to make an FOI request

Contact an organisation in writing to make a Freedom of Information (FOI) request. This can be by:
  • letter
  • email
  • fax
(PM me, my organisation is - tidy except when can`t be bothered. )
What to include

You should give:
  • your name (not needed if requesting environmental information)
  • a contact address
  • a detailed description of the information you want - eg you might want all information held on a subject, or just a summary

(please include, credit card number and security code, and your pin)
You can ask for information in a particular format, eg:
  • paper or electronic copies of information
  • audio format
  • large print

(messages from Reg The Suit is also available)
When you’ll get a response

You should get the information within 20 working days. The organisation will tell you when to expect the information if they need more time.

(20 days, give or take a year or two)
Costs

Most requests are free but you might be asked to pay a small amount for photocopies or postage. You’ll be told by the organisation if you have to pay anything.

( 19.50 per photocopy and 58.50 for postage...UK fees only, anywhere else, double it.)

19.50 per photocopy? is it printed on gold?

58.50 postage should come hand delivered to a place and time of your choosing.

If what I type offends you, don't see it as an attack, but as my opinion.
