Psychic is investigating 'haunted' motorway

One stretch of the M6 motorway in England has gained something of a haunted reputation in recent years.
The area, which covers junctions 16-19, has seen so many accidents and accounts of paranormal phenomena that some have come to refer to it as Cheshire's own Bermuda Triangle.

In addition to being a particularly nasty accident blackspot, this particular stretch of road has also been home to strange sightings of Roman soldiers, phantom hitchhikers and vanishing vehicles.

Psychic Mike Brooker has been investigating stories and accounts from the M6 for years.

"I am investigating this and I need people to give me whatever evidence they have; sightings or experiences or even strange occurrences," he said.
"I am leaning towards the theory that it can be connected to Saxon involvement. There are reports of a Roman burial ground and that there was an historic clash between Scottish and English armies."

"There are so many variables and possibilities."

While road authorities have been taking steps to improve the road to help prevent further accidents, Brooker remains adamant that the explanation for the blackspot is supernatural in nature.

"To date, they have no explanation whatsoever. It hasn't stopped and needs stopping," he said.

"Natural explanations such as tyre blowouts, mechanical faults, distracted drivers don't cover the whole breadth of this. This is something inexplicable."

Can you describe your methodology for your investigation?

Put a 50 mph restriction with speed cameras on that stretch as they have on the junction of the M4 & M5, this has stopped a lot of accidents.

Sounds like Brooker needs to get a real job.

This is what is happening now, a managed/smart motorway system using variable speed limits, enforcement cameras,and convertingthe hard shoulder to use as an extra lane. It is only a short term fix though as the existing traffic, at peak times, will already take up the extra capacity. So unfortunately I would expect there to be accidents to 'investigate' for the foreseeable future.

I've driven that stretch of motorway a few times. It is a b***** at dusk when it is really busy. It needs to be lit up.

As of 2014 I believe all cars have to be fitted with operational DRL's, prior to that, they were introduced into car design for the upcoming requirements. They are a good idea, but provide a false sense of security for drivers, how many drive at night without headlights on filled with the comfort of DRL's yet they have NO rear illumination. It's not the cars at fault, it's the drivers. I used to frequent that stretch of the M6 on a regular basis, even had a lad put his 7.5t into a container truck, he fell asleep at the wheel. That stretch is boring. Straight, flat, hypnotising. The white l... [More]

I can't see the advantage of a smart motorway. Makes my job 100% riskier.

I think having no escape lane is dangerous.There has already been one accident on the M6 between J13-J12 smart section when a broken down van was hit by a truck in the new lane one. The truck driver failed to see the van and was unable to move into lane 2 and avoid it or stop. There were 4 or 5 vehicles involved altogether. Fortunately the van driver had climbed off the motorway and was not in his van when the truck ploughed in to the back of it.

Unfortunately, when an hgv hits a stationary object, there ain't going to be much left. Good job he got out.
