GHOST hunters have are investigating strange goings-on at a Southampton museum.

Paranormal investigators who have launched a year-long investigation after staff and volunteers at Solent Sky in Southampton claimed to have seen ghostly figures and heard mysterious noises.

Some of the unexplained occurrences include hearing the sound of people running on the museum floor late at night when no-one was inside.

Others said they have seen figures lurking in-between the planes.

Daily Echo:

The investigation will be carried out by ghost-hunting group Haunted Southampton, and it is the first long-running paranormal probe into mysterious disturbances at the same place in the city.

The group decided to investigate when they were told by a friend who had visited the museum that staff had experienced some unusual disturbances.

Full-time investigator Peter Collins followed up the lead and spoke to the musuem manager about finding out whether the museum is housing spirits as well as old aircraft including Spitfires.

On the first investigation at the museum back in January, Peter and his wife Juliet claim to have seen a mysterious figure running between two planes.

Another person who has heard and seen things he can’t explain is Andy Southwell, who volunteers at the Albert Road South museum.

He said: “I often think I see something out of the corner of my eye but when I look back it’s gone. I’ve also heard footsteps late at night when locking up and there’s been no one here.

“It’s not scary, we just want some answers.”

One aircraft which some visitors and staff say could be haunted is the Sandringham flying boat (below) – the museum’s centre piece.

Daily Echo:

Solent Sky manager Steve Alcock said: “When you’re on your own you sometimes hear the flagstones next to the Sandringham make noises – but you know there’s no-one there.”

The results of the study will be revealed in December.

What a complete load of tosh, if you look at Peter profile on his web site he says he has fr many years been investigating report of paranormal activity. However, over these many year he has come up with no evidence what so ever. He then claims to use scientific methods to record his evidence....of which there is none. what a waste of column inches.

Why not follow this fantasist as an Echo investigation and show him for the fraud he is.

Couldn't agree more. These deluded people rely on credulous idiots at the Echo to give them free publicity, and the credulous idiots duly oblige. A proper investigative journalist would be exposing the ghost-hunters for the charlatans they are.

Hey he's not the first to have a story written about ghost hunting in the echo we at Shirley Warren Secondary School circ 1969/70 were.
we went to Cheriton to do a ghost hunt on the Caveliers and Roundheads. We spent all of a saturday night walking around or just sitting and listening as you were supposed to hear screams and clashes of swords. We didnt but it was fun someone did drive a horse and carriage down a field path about 0200am but that was all. On our way home we had to catch a bus to Winchester we were messing about at the bus stop and a man hollard out of his window to be quiet its a sunday we gave our best reply lol, only to find out he was the local magistrate / bobby i believe the heading in the Echo was Holligans from School on a Ghost Hunt thats all my mother read and i got a crack around the ear i told her to read the story next time then she said sorry but asusual it was too late ouch. The next hunt we did was the one Hand Church at North Stoneham (St Nicholas) we did or thought we saw grave stones sway,Then a white lady in the church and when walking the ground you could feel different heat patterns along a bank. So dont knock what you dont understand try it first i did have a bad experience in Germany but thats another story that scared the ____ out of me for weeks.

No they are hurting people both emotionally and financially, these charlatans and frauds should be hounded out. Starting from the premise of being a paranormal investigator. This is a made up title, just as I can claim to be a unicorn investigator (who has followed up numerous possible sightings, but never caught one), he then claims to be a psychic. Just look at the harm committed by others such a Sylvia Brown, (Sometimes Browne is not only wrong but also tells suffering families horrible things. In 1999, Browne did a reading for Opal Jo Jennings’ grandmother, who wanted to know what happened to Jennings, a six-year-old abducted from her front yard in Texas. Browne told the grandmother, “She’s . . . not . . . dead. But what bothers me—now I’ve never heard of this before, but for some reason, she was taken and put into some kind of a slavery thing and taken into Japan. The place is Kukouro. Or Kukoura.” Browne was wrong. Child molester Richard Lee Franks was charged with the kidnapping that same year and convicted the following year. Jennings’ remains were discovered in 2003. Medical examiners concluded that “Opal was killed by trauma to the head with several hours of her abduction.” ) then there is the other fraud Derek Acorah, just google Mary loves dick or Kreed Kafer.

As an aside I have equal dislike for all religion and feel we should be encouraged to heckle in Church when blatantly false claims are made.

I know film actors exist because I have seen them in films, seen them interviewed on chat shows, and seen their photographs in papers and magazines.

Ghosts and paranormal events only ever appear as a blurred smudge, for a few seconds, on amateur film clips. Why is that ?

When the same ghost appears in a film, on a chat show, and has photographs published, then I'll believe they exist.

Until then, I shall go on enjoying horror and science FICTION as entertainment.

What a complete load of tosh, if you look at Peter profile on his web site he says he has fr many years been investigating report of paranormal activity.

Why not follow this fantasist as an Echo investigation and show him for the fraud he is.
How do you know he's not come up with evidence?? I've been on a number of evenings with Pete and on once instance a five foot tall mirror wrenched itself off the wall right in front of us! On another instance a door just opened completely on its own. Don't knock what you don't know...
Great Peter has evidence? where is this has he shared it with anyone, is it recognised as anything rather than just an accident or coincidence by any one other than another ghost hunter.

Perhaps Peter could could do an article on his suitcase( the one in the picture) or the yellow hand held device. What are they measuring, how do we know they are recording ghosts, if they record any thing at all?

It is quiet normal for Ghost hunters to come up with the cover story for the claimed Ghost... A tortured soul who met a grizzly end in the building and now it resides there. How does this work for the museum as it was only built in 1983, and there were no reports of beheadings etc at the time or since. Could it be the aircraft, as we know many airmen were killed, is it now being claimed that their spirits have drifted from their own wrecked plane and now taken up residence in a plane that has nothing to do with them.

What if science eventually proves that the human soul continues to exist as pure energy after the death of the body, and that some human brains can trigger a visual manifestation? Hey! I could make a living out of this horses**t !

Do dogs see human ghosts? Do they see ghosts of squirrels?

Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep? (Who wrote that? Philip K _ _ _ _?)

Couldn't agree more. These deluded people rely on credulous idiots at the Echo to give them free publicity, and the credulous idiots duly oblige. A proper investigative journalist would be exposing the ghost-hunters for the charlatans they are.
Is it boring having such 'open' minds?
It's not so good if your mind is so 'open' that your brains have fallen out.

Ghost sories usually add a bit of colour to a dry historical subject, and help drum up business for museums and tours. They spice up the past. I find it strange that some people appear so deeply offended by the notion that they'll take to message boards full of spite. Personally, I don't everything there is to know about everything ever. We don't have a cure for cancer yet, does that mean it doesn't exist? Go back a few hundred years and people didn't believe a horseless carriage was possible. Do I believe in ghosts? Well, what does that matter? There's more evidence to say that there probably isn't than there is, but I wouldn't discount it or dismiss other's opinions or beliefs.

Perhaps you do have an open mind after all then. Hope it wasn't messy when they dropped out.
