Police in the West Midlands have dealt with 70 reports of paranormal activity within the last 3 years.
According to data revealed following an anonymous Freedom of Information request, police have been dealing with an increasing number of strange call-outs in recent years involving reports of ghosts, witches and even zombies.

Many of the reports turned out to be hoaxes however there were still a few that needed to be investigated. The number of such incidents has risen from around 17 in 2011 to 30 in 2013.

"The reports include ghost, zombie and witch sightings; hearing and communicating with the aforementioned; the use of witchcraft; claims to be a witch; and witch-hunters," said police spokesman Billy Corrigan.

The data also shows that there were 19 reports relating to UFO sightings during the same period.

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.
