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.

"Most pubs are used to seeing scuffles and disturbances on their premises, but they are usually not of the supernatural kind."

For some reason I like the name Mr Skinner. Not sure where I've heard it before? Skinner is the principal on the Simpsons. Also the behaviorist. B.F.

He would be very annoying to have around. At least its not their house, would be hard to sleep with him around.
