North Wales Police reveal supernatural incidents
by Kate Forrester, DPW West
ASSAULTS by ghosts, visits from vampires and thefts by witches... These are just a handful of the supernatural incidents reported to North Wales Police within the last five years.
The force revealed it has been called to deal with incidents involving ghosts, vampires and witches – but has moved to assure residents that “no reports of demons, werewolves, wizards or zombies” have been received.
One distressed caller told officers they were possessed by a ghost, while another believed they were a vampire.
Out of 41 incidents, nine rang 999 to report ghosts in their house, five reported witches and one claimed to be sharing their home with a vampire.
Four separate spirit sightings were recorded, while mischievous ghosts and witches were alleged to be responsible for three assaults and a theft.
And two callers believed they were being pursued by witches, while one reported being “surrounded by witches and vampires”.
The force also received 13 calls reporting UFO sightings between 2004 and 2011.
The last recorded incident, revealed in response to a Freedom of Information request, was in Conwy last year, when a caller reported seeing an object directly above their house which they described as “a huge light with glowing green triangles at the back”.
Elfyn Roberts, co-owner of North Wales-based company Supernatural Activity, said people who experience ghostly incidents are often afraid to seek help.
He added: “It is quite unusual for people to report supernatural activity like this to the police, or to anyone.
“Often when people report these kinds of incidents to us, it takes a lot of persuasion on our part before they will agree to let us investigate because they are worried about the consequences and making the problem worse.
“Our advice to anyone who experiences an unexplained incident is to get in touch with people who have professional expertise.”
