Staff at the Trocadero bar in Birmingham have been spooked by the ghost of a murdered landlord.
Henry Skinner, who was killed 116 years ago, is thought to make his presence known by knocking over glasses and throwing beer mats. There have also been reported sightings of two girls who fell to their deaths down one of the staircases and a mysterious smell of burning wood that some believe to be a reminder of the building's past as a fire station.
