SPOOKS are making their own strange deliveries at a newsagents' shop in Crewe.
A string of unexplained incidents has left Terry and Lindsay Jones, owners of Hightown News in Hightown, believing the premises may be haunted.
They have experienced a ghostly force behind the counter whilst magazines have flown off the shelves.
Amongst some of the unexplained incidents is the tape dispenser moving off a shelf and dropping on to the counter whilst Terry was serving a customer.
The couple have also both felt a hand pushing them in the back when standing at the counter.
On another occasion a tape disappeared out of the security camera video, appearing out of nowhere a few days later at the back of the shop.
The couple have owned the shop for eight years and previously it was a butcher's. It was once part of a Victorian row of shops.
A medium who used to own the Corridors of Time shop next door told them that she felt a presence at the back of the shops.
Lindsay said: 'There's always been a rumour that this building has been haunted. Some people have even said that someone committed suicide here.'
But the couple insist there has been nothing sinister going on. Terry said: 'It's all been a joke with us as it must be a friendly ghost.'
The supernatural reports are amongst a number of spooky sightings in the area.
The Lyceum Theatre, which stands on the site of an old Roman Catholic church and graveyard, is said to have three resident ghosts.
A conscience-stricken monk has been seen in the lower areas below the auditorium and more recently in the Three Lamps pub behind the theatre.
There have also been sightings of an old actor around the stage door and a ballet dancer who hanged herself in the dressing room.
Crewe Baths is also reported to be haunted by the ghost of the first superintendent who died nearby. nDo you know why Hightown News could be haunted? If so, please let us know.
