‘Ghost pushing pint off’ in UK pub table caught on CCTV

London, May 30 (ANI): A haunted pub in England has caught on its CCTV a glass of pint falling mysteriously by itself from a table.

Sean Moore had left his drink unattended during the weekly quiz at the New Inn in Gloucester, and when his back was turned the glass suddenly slid over the edge of the table.

The 14th Century pub has been having problems with spirits for centuries, with people reporting a host of weird goings-on.

Paranormal investigators are now set to do a full probe at the pub.

“I’d heard all these stories before we arrived and was pretty sceptical, like most people,” the Sun quoted landlord Mark Cooke, 35, as saying.

“But the moving pint was something else. When I saw it on the CCTV it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

“You just can’t explain it - the table’s dead steady, the floor’s not uneven, and no-one’s near it,” he explained.

Legend has it some children were killed in a fire at the pub centuries ago - and the corner where the pint was left is the place where their nanny used to watch over them from a rocking chair.

By coincidence, Lyn Cinderey from the Gloucester Active Paranormal Society was taking part in the quiz when the pint moved.

“There were a few people in the bar, and four people saw this glass - a full pint - just lift up and fall on the floor. The glass didn’t even break,” she said.

“The rest of us looked around and heard the thud. We just couldn’t believe it. It was right there in the middle of the quiz.

“I’ve been investigating this building for a long time and I’ve never known it so active,” she added. (ANI)
