The day a poltergeist attacked me: Skeptical about the supernatural? So was the Mail’s MICHAEL HELLICAR – until he saw events so chilling they still haunt him to this day
Journalist Hellicar was sent to report on the ‘Enfield Poltergeist’ in 1977 . This is his first hand account into those terrifying events.
The first sign that something was amiss came when the children’s Lego bricks were hurled at me by an unseen hand. The next came a few minutes later, when a heavy kitchen cabinet crashed to the floor at my feet. Yet I had been alone in the room — or so I thought. Scariest of all, though, was the very palpable atmosphere of fear. A malevolent spirit seemed to have taken up residence, moving the furniture, emptying drawers, sprinkling water, lighting matches and causing general mayhem, forcing the terrified Hodgson family who lived there to huddle together in dread.
It seemed to centre its attention on 11-year-old Janet, who was levitated above her bed, sent into violent trances and made to speak in a rasping male voice. Many of the 1,500 psychic occurrences there were not only independently witnessed but are verified by investigators’ photographs and audio tape.
The Enfield Poltergeist, as the ghostly visitor became known, first made its presence felt soon after Janet and her older sister Margaret, 12, played with a ouija board.
‘The girls were changing into their nightclothes and complained something was making their beds wobble,’ their mother Peggy explained to me after the haunting began. ‘I told them to stop messing about.
‘The next night, I heard screaming and banging coming from their room after they had gone to bed. When I went in, a heavy chest of drawers was sliding by itself across the floor, trying to block the doorway. The girls were terrified.
‘I pushed the chest back against the wall, but it slid towards me again. I tried, but I couldn’t stop it. I wondered if my two younger boys [Johnny, 10, and Billy, seven] were playing pranks, because they also slept upstairs, but they weren’t anywhere near the room.’
Over the next few weeks more furniture moved of its own accord; plates, cutlery, toys and books would go flying, and one night things were so bad Peggy called the police, who arrived to see a sitting-room chair lift off the carpet and move towards them.
One of the officers, WPC Carolyn Heeps, later reported: ‘It came to rest after about 4ft. I checked it for hidden wires or any other means by which it could have moved, but there was nothing to explain it.’
Seen a ghost? Then you may have inhaled toxic mold: Poor air quality in old buildings may lead to haunting hallucinations
If you think you have seen a ghost, you may have been suffering the effects of exposure to mould, according to a group of scientists. Researchers claim that older buildings where hauntings are usually reported, often have poor air quality from pollutants like toxic mould, which can affect our brains. Exposure to the mould can cause mood swings, irrational anger and cognitive impairment.
‘Experiences reported in many hauntings are similar to mental or neurological symptoms reported by individuals exposed to toxic moulds,’ said Professor Shane Rogers of Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York.
‘Psychoactive effects of some fungi are well-known, whereas the effects of others such as indoor moulds are less researched. Although allergy and asthma symptoms and other physiological effects are well established, there has long been controversy over the effects of indoor mould exposure on cognitive and other functioning of the brain.Reports of psychiatric symptoms including mood swings, hyperactivity, and irrational anger, as well as cognitive impairment are prevalent among those exposed to moulds. Other reports include depression and loss of memory function. More recent work is emerging that supports brain inflammation and memory loss in mice exposed to Stachybotrys charatarum, a common indoor air mould, as well as increased anxiety and fear.’
Professor Rogers is currently leading a team of researchers measuring air quality in several reportedly haunted places around New York State.
The group will compare samples taken from several buildings where ghost sightings have been reported with samples taken from properties with no paranormal activity, to see if there is a difference in the types of fungi.
Professor Rogers said: ‘I have long been a fan of ghost stories and shows related to investigation of haunted places and have to admit to some strange occurrences in my own past.”
UFO hunters probe mystery ‘flashing, colored’ lights above skies of San Diego
This strange image of a string of colored flashing lights has been posted an a number of alien and UFO websites after several residents of the city in California, US, reported seeing the same thing.
Local resident Larry Fox sent news channel NBC 7 the picture of an “odd light” he spotted in the night sky. The channel described the picture as “a string of multi-coloured lights”.Mr Fox said he was in his back garden when he saw the strange light to the southwest of the city.”I ruled out a drone or a plane because the light was stationary. It was a series of flashing lights,” he said, adding: “If it was a plane, it would have moved.”Mr Fox was reported to have described the lights as “red, blue and green” and that the they “kept flashing and changing colours”.
NBC 7 claimed several other viewers had called in to say they witnessed the same mystery phenomenon, including one of their own photographers, who did not appear to have captured the moment.
San Diego was a hotspot for strange colour and shape-changing UFOs in the 1950s and 1960s, according to US secret files that were revealed by newspaper U-T San Diego this year.They trawled through thousands of US government records to look at those from the Californian city.
There were five UFOs recorded from May 1952 to April 1966.
May 1952 a white spinning sphere emitting a red trail which was dismissed as a meteorite
October 1957 a bright light, changing from blueish white to reddish/orange which was static them moving fast, was concluded to be possibly a weather balloon
February 1959 a heart-shaped, white object at about 60,000 feet, also thought by investigators to have been a weather balloon
September 1961 a crescent-shaped object with rotating and flashing lights larger than six jets and much faster .This remained unexplained
April 1966 multiple witnesses reported an object in early morning in the skies above Camp Pendleton and elsewhere, described as a “solid, roundish shape, with one trailing edge” pointing eastward. One woman said it was a horseshoe that changed into an exclamation mark which was spinning but stationary. Investigators concluded it was a meteorite.
Sceptics believe the latest odd image, which was unlike the older ones caught on camera, can be explained as camera shake, and could even be a poor picture of planet Venus.
Is this the ghost of a samurai soldier standing behind a little girl?
A spine-tingling image has emerged appearing to show the ghost of a samurai soldier standing behind a little girl.The photo was taken along the Japanese shore in Kanagawa – supposedly near tombs of soldiers who died in battle.
It shows eerie black boots behind the girl’s legs, giving the impression he is looking out to sea.
The disturbing images were uploaded to Reddit with the user ‘Obiaruf’ insisting they have not been Photoshopped.
A description reads: ‘I’m not saying it’s anything – just that it looks an awful lot like disembodied boots and legs. I know there are several very old samurai tombs nearby. Again, not saying that this is what is there, just that, based on preliminary research, this is my best guess.’

NASA wants to know if YOU think Ceres’ ‘lights’ are proof of aliens or naturally caused
NASA wants armchair astronomers to help it work out what two ‘bright spots’ on a dwarf planet are.
The US space agency has called for help from the public after conspiracy theorists put forward wild speculations online that the lights on small planet Ceres could be signs of it being an alien space station like the Star Wars Death Star.
A NASA unmanned space probe called Dawn is currently orbiting Ceres and getting closer pictures all the time, but its experts remain baffled as to what the lights are.It has launched an online poll for people’s views giving six options:
They include a volcano, geyser, rock, ice, salt deposit, or ‘other’, which presumably includes alien space stations and other UFOs
The website says: ‘Can you guess what’s creating those unusual bright spots on Ceres? On March 6, NASA’s Dawn spacecraft began orbiting Ceres, the largest body in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Even before the spacecraft arrived at the dwarf planet, images revealed mysterious bright spots that captivated scientists and observers alike. Until Dawn gets a closer look over the next few months, it’s anyone’s guess what those spots could be. So, go ahead! Cast your vote.’
The poll came after UFO forums speculated the mystery lights could have been put there by aliens trying to contact other beings.
The unexplained bright spots in a crater on Ceres’ surface were first recorded by NASA probe Dawn in February from a distance of 29,000 miles.
Now the unmanned craft has taken closer pictures of the two brightest areas from 14,000 miles, but astronomers and space scientists have still not reached any firm conclusions about what they are.
Some researchers suggest the cause could be reflective ice patches or the signs of ice volcanoes, or cryovolcanos, which form on icy moons or asteroids. Instead of hot magma, they erupt water, ammonia or methane, which solidifies once released. But the lack of certainty has triggered speculation among online UFO hunters that they must have been created by extra-terrestrials, with some convinced they know exactly what they are.

Mystery red light over New York sparks panicked 911 calls to report ALIEN invasion
A MYSTERIOUS red light hovering over New York City caused several panicked residents to call authorities to report their fears that ALIENS were landing.
According to US reports, many people called emergency services after seeing the red light darting about at high speed. They also claimed the light then hovered, becoming stationary, before darting off, with some describing a flying saucer and others a fireball.
Juan Marrero, 57, a pigeon fancier, got on his roof at 11.30pm on Saturday after seeing two bright lights streak across the sky. He told the New York Post: “I looked up and saw this fireball, Whoosh and then another, Whoosh. “From one side of the sky to the other, too fast for an airplane.”
Meanwhile Andres Morales, 25, said he also saw the object and tried to record it on film. He said: “I stuck my hand out the car window and snapped like crazy. I don’t know what it was but it was moving crazy fast.”
Similar reports in the area were made a year ago and also in 2011.
A New York Times reporter claimed on Twitter that police would not be drawn on the weekend’s sighting.
Self-styled UFO journalist Ryan Sprague, who is based in New York, said: “I definitely think we’re dealing with anomalies that could potentially be non-human.” However, Mr Sprague conceded that because the site of the sightings, at East 149th Street, was close to the city’s La Guardia Airport it could be a case of “misidentification”. However, he urged for witnesses claims not to be discounted.
