Freaky footage shows alleged ghost knocking a bag off shop’s counter
By Douglas Whitbread via SWNS
A pair of sweet shop owners have released “freaky” footage of a suspected ghost triggering their security cameras and knocking a bag off their counter.
Amy and Lauren Elleray-Wilson said they’d got a notification that something was moving in one of their Lollipops confectionary shops last Saturday (30/7).
But when the married couple studied the video, all they could see was a white orb flying around the screen, leaving them dumbstruck.
Further footage from two days earlier revealed how a bag had fallen off a counter - as though it had been “pushed” - without warning.
After the pair shared the video on social media, online sleuths noticed other possible paranormal evidence, including ghostly limbs and further orbs.
And Amy has since found out that two children died next to the shop, in Preston, Lancs., leading her to think that they might be haunted by a sweet-toothed youngster.
She said: “When we looked at it, we could just see this white orb flying around the screen, so we thought what is going on? And we watched it for a good ten minutes.”
“We shared it on social media, and people started saying, 'Oh my days, can you see the arm? The other orb?'
“And when we went back over it and looked closely, and turned the brightness up, I was like, 'Wow, you could see all this activity.'
“People have told us that there was a couple of children that had been killed outside the shop, so it could be a boy coming in and looking round.”
Amy, 32, said she was at home last Saturday night when she got the notification saying something was moving around in the Bamber Bridge branch of her co-owned sweet store.
She said: “We were at my family's house last Saturday night. We then had a motion detector go off in the shop. We got a notification on our phone.
“We just thought someone was breaking in. Your heart drops, and you feel sick.”
However, when the pair looked at the footage, all they could see was a silvery orb circling the darkly lit sweet shop.
Amy said her sister, Meghan, who works at the same store, then said she’d experienced another strange event just two days before.
She said: “I took some of the footage and put it on the staff WhatsApp group.
“My sister, Meghan then said ‘Wow, that is so weird that is happening. The other day when she was cashing up a few days before, my bag had fallen off the side.’
“I looked at the CCTV again and found this footage. Her bag had been on the side for 12 to 13 minutes, and then it looks like it had been pushed pack.
“The bag leans back and falls forward. We were like “what on earth!”. She just had an empty water bottle and sandwich box in there. I said, “This is freaky!”
Amy then shared the footage on her company’s Facebook page, with ghost enthusiasts managing to find more clues that were suggestive of paranormal activity.
She said she didn’t know if anyone had passed away in the property, but said she had been told that two children had died nearby in the past.
Amy said: “We know that previously it was a hat shop, and previous to that it was a post office. That's all I know.
“We have been having people tell us that there was a couple of children that had been killed outside the shop, one we think may have got run over.
“It’s a busy road so I’m just guessing it could have been a road traffic accident, but I’m not sure. I wouldn’t want to presume.”
Amy said that she hadn’t contacted any ghost hunters yet, but had already received requests from people wanting to stay overnight.
She said: “I’m waiting for people to contact us. I wouldn’t know which avenue to go down.”
“But we’ve had people ask if they can stay over at the shop. It’s been freaky, really freaky.”
