Mystery woman 'wails through letterboxes'

Several households in England have been plagued by a woman crying through their letterboxes at night.
Residents of the town of Kirkby have become afraid to stay in their own homes after experiencing a fierce banging on their doors and a woman shouting and wailing in the middle of the night.

The identity of the mysterious visitor, who reportedly calls out that she has nowhere to go and asks to be let in, is now been investigated by the local police force.

"Someone was knocking at my door but I ignored it. I woke up and my back gate was open," said one local resident. "The old lady living over the road said the same thing happened but a lady was crying at hers saying she had no money."
"Luckily the lady told her there was a police station over the road and she went. It's awful. Knowing that this lady came to mine is scary. I feel like she's going to come back and knowing she went through my back gate is even worse."

In some cases the woman was reported to have banged on the door for more than an hour.

"Around 2am on Friday morning we heard banging on our door but I was too scared to go down," said another resident. "I stopped my boyfriend going down because I was shaking. You just don't expect it."

The last time someone was knocking like crazy, me and my daughter had slept in.  I was changing out of my pjs while my daughter was trying to see who it was.  They went from front door to patio door to back door.  I had always told my daughter that we didn't have to open our door to anyone...finally I hear her tell to me it was a police man looking in the window at her!  Lol.  Poor guy was looking for a woman and it was an emergency.  We live on a Street, but I know there is the same address on an avenue.  Once I explained to him we don't open the door since there are some sketchy neighbours, ...

It surely does. But if it's real I bet it's something non-paranormal. Just some drunk hobo woman wanting something incomprehensible, or just a wind blowing from a rare direction.

Security cameras are cheap these days, set up camera with motion detector, catch the Midnight Screamer

Well, I don't really believe in the paranormal. Even tho, I don't mind watching the odd scary movie.. I agree that it was probably just an eccentric and possibly drunk old bag lady that lives on the streets. Hopefully, there will be a follow up to the story.

Seems like you should just call the police. If someone showed up and I didn't want to see them, they have about five minutes to leave before I call the police to come remove them.

Same thing happened in Leicester, when a guy answered his door to help the woman 2 men pushed him inside and robbed him.
