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. The most calls asking for police to attend reports of scary creatures come from St Ann's and Sneinton, with 24 reports in 2012, according to a Freedom of Information request.
