UK police called over ghost sightings

Peterborough police have been alerted numerous times over the years following sightings of ghosts.

A newspaper Freedom of Information request has revealed a startling number of reports about paranormal goings on. In September 2009 one local called the police to report a burglary by a ghost, when officers arrived they searched the house but found nothing. In November of that same year a 'ghost child' was reported for causing a disturbance in a field. The following year, another police report detailed how officers were called to a home in which a child had reported a 'ghost' trying to break in to his bedroom window.

"Police in Peterborough have been called on to act as ghost busters by victims who feel they may have been targeted by thieves and yobs from beyond the grave."

Buy some insulation for the house and attic and floor. then put up a camera and there wont be any ghosts. Is the human race becoming more ignorant every day? you have to wonder.

You guys got it wrong, the little boy saw something scary and called for help the only way he knew how. Don't you seem to understand the psycology of the matter. This story is so disturbing it's sad. The child probably called police because he was scared and maybe his parents didn't believe him.

That kid could of been dreaming when he thought he saw a ghost coming through his window. Most of it was probably imagination but like that one man said most but not everything can be explained away.
