A woman in England recently dialled 999 because she thought her neighbor had sent a ghost to haunt her.
The bizarre incident, which occurred in the town of Haywards Heath in Sussex, England, saw the unnamed woman call the emergency services at midnight on May 22nd with a very unusual concern.

She explained that she believed her neighbor had sent a ghost to her house to haunt her.

The police however were not too amused by the call.

Mid-Sussex Inspector Darren Taylor has used the incident to remind people only to dial the emergency services in the event of an actual emergency.
"We get all kinds of weird and wonderful calls into 999, but people need to be aware that when they call the emergency number they are blocking people getting through who are in a real emergency," he said.

"It's absolutely key that we allow people who need the police straight away to be able to get through."

"For non-emergency incidents, the public are advised to call 101 or email Sussex Police."

In this particular case, the woman in question was reassured about the unlikely nature of her concern.

Exactly what prompted her unusual call in the first place however remains a mystery.

Why didn't the Police investigate it properly, by sending a Priest over there with a fly-swatter?

'Unfortunately for the woman who believed that she was the target of a supernatural attack, it seems that there was little that the police could do about it. Instead, they simply provided "some reassuring words," presumably suggesting that her home was not infested by a sinister spirit, and offered some "words of advice" when it comes to what necessitates an emergency call to the police.'  What kind of message is that sending to people who send ghosts to other peoples houses?

I had a neighbor in an apartment that used to accuse me of capturing spiders and slipping them under a door. That is until we both happened to be outside when a spider crawled on me and i screamed in panic. She learned i suffer from crippling arachnaphobia. I am still working on trying to get over this fear. Snakes, rats, bats, mice and bugs i have no problem with.

Hahaha! Didn't Michael Keaton's character do that in the film "Pacific Heights"?
