'Poltergeist' disturbs Luton restaurant table

CCTV footage from Jimmyís World Grill and Bar in Luton shows chairs and cutlery moving on their own.
The peculiar footage, which seems to show objects moving by themselves just moments after a customer moves away from the table, appears to have staff members at the eatery genuinely perplexed. The activity begins at around the 50 second mark and is concentrated at the table at the bottom center of the frame.

"The incident was brought to my attention by a customer who was sitting a few tables away and heard a loud crash," said manager Rehan Anwar. "When she turned around there was nobody sat at the table which baffled her. I instantly went over to the table where the incident had taken place to find a broken plate and cutlery on the floor. I didnít think too much of it at the time but when talking to the staff about it a couple of days later they joked about it being a ghost."

The footage shows the chair, the menu, the napkin and the cutlery all being moved by an unseen force. Unfortunately it's difficult to rule out the possibility of a hoax because it's impossible to see what lies directly in front of the table off camera.

"The suspected ghost or poltergeist has created a lot of interest amongst the staff and it makes locking up at night a little bit scary," said Anwar.

Before I watch any "Poltergeist" footage, I always predict these 3 things: 1) The objects being moved will be nearest to or furthest away from the camera, 2) One or more of the objects moved will be partially visible on the camera, 3) One or more of the objects moved will be moved in the direction outside of the camera's visible area. So far, I have NEVER been wrong. In every alleged "Poltergeist" footage I have viewed, at least 2 or all of these 3 things have occurred. Why do you think? This is because it is a hoax!

All three movements can be done by fishing line from off screen. You don't see anything move away from the camera, just toward it from different angles, left right and centre. . Add that to the time skips for corroborative hoax evidence. Nice try but hoaxers sh@t me. What's the agenda in being a liar?

A detail that means nothing....but the other tables are not set up correctly. Otherwise, looks kind of like a setup to me. I wonder where the womans dining companion was during this. Her companion was a drunken ghost I think..

I think the restaurant is in crisis and had the brilliant idea of ??creating a commercial .. think for a moment .. who would not want to eat at a place where the poltergeists will enjoy take away the pot from under the nose or pierce you with a fork in the ass? lol

Strings. If you look at the plate flying off the table you notice that the place mat that it's on (why is there a cloth place mat in the first place?) turns on an angle as it goes off the table. This suggests that it's being pulled.

This suggests that it's being pulled. Agree completely. It would be impressive footage if the items weren't all conveniently moving toward areas that were off camera.

Rogers right. The clock skips forward about 7/10s of a second every time something moves. The rightmost 2 digits are not hundredths of a second. They are frame numbers; 30 frames per second, so no numbers above that, 0-29.

Was that woman with the fine figure finished with her meal? Seems a bit wasteful. Poltergeist doesn't respect the litter laws? You know we have those laws in place for a reason. Slob!
