Police in Nottingham have been called out to nearly 100 reports of ghosts, monsters and zombies.

According to a recent Freedom of Information Act request, officers received 24 such reports in 2012 alone ranging from sightings of ghosts to encounters with zombies and werewolves. Many of the cases came from people taking part in haunted tours, a common source of paranormal experiences.

"I personally saw a ghost in 2010 on one of our tours at the Galleries of Justice," said Jessica Gladwin of the Dusk Till Dawn ghost-hunting company. "I have seen an increase in the number of people susceptible to seeing spirits because people seem to be coming more and more open minded. I'm not surprised that the police have seen an increase in reports."

"Notts police have seen nearly 100 reports of sightings of aliens, monsters, werewolves, zombies and witches over the last three years."

In the end if you came travelling with high expectations in Nottingham, spending lots of money for this vancancy your eyes will see what you want them to see. I think that's what may have in part been going on there. Some places may have some legetimate paranormal activity I just don't know but it has doubtless been blown out of proportions. Reporting that to the police doesn't make any sens. What can they do? Nothing and no one can blame them...I've no doubt there maybe some hoaxes by pranksters to unaware tourists but it's not a crime to wear Halloween costumes as long a... [More]

There has been an increase of scary movies with the same kinds of critters as well, I'd say imagination and wishful thinking would cause some of these sightings.

I was a prosecutor for a decade and a half. Two things that should be kept in mind. First, people call the police for anything and everything they either don't understand or can't get done. The assistance for which police are summoned, and the appropriateness of bringing the attention of law enforcement to the situation, ranges from comical to tragical to baffling. Basically, if someone doesn't know quite what to do or what to think, they dial 911 and are often outraged when told it's not really within the competence of the police or something to which that they should divert c...

the sightings could be happening for a couple reasons,. people are crazy or people really are seeing things due to becoming more enlightend..either way why would you ever call the police, surely calling a priest would be your first port of call..then depending on the supernatural creature either run and hide or buy a cruifix and some silver bullets..

I am sure there are at least 100 kids in any given district that have thought if not acted on making a crank call to 911. If there is a "fad" amongst them to do so, then one upmanship would see us end up with wackier and weirder calls in clusters like this. Add to this those with over active imaginations young and old and 100 doesn't seem like such a large number at all.
