Sounds downright fake, or is it?
As absurd as it may sound, Birmingham pensioner Ron claims that a ghost couple have shared his bed for more than seven years.
The 87-year-old believes he knows the ghostly couple. They used to live in the Hamilton Court OAP complex, in Cotteridge, and weren’t prepared to leave, even after slipping this mortal coil.
“She rules him with a rod of iron,” says Ron. “I feel a bit sorry for him.
“I’m not frightened of them at all. In fact, I call them everything under the sun.”
Widower Ron, who has lived in the flat for 22 years, alerted a warden about the ghoulish activity and has called in a ghostbuster.
The ghosthunter gave me two stones to ward them off,” he says. “I put them on the side, by the bed, and when I woke up they’d gone.”
“He’s alright,” shrugs the tenant. “It’s her who does all the damage.”
He has accused the deceased wife of causing strife by breaking his video, turning off lights and ringing the doorbell.
Once, she and her other half left Ron alone for a number of months – but signalled their return by breaking the silence with an eerie: “We’re back!”
But it’s the couple’s undercover, nocturnal activities that are proving the biggest nuisance.
Ron claims they lie either side of him.
“They’ll sometimes swap places,” he says. “And sometimes, when I’ve dozed off, they shake the bed. I’ve also felt the floor shake under my bed.”
“Sometimes they even follow me around if I get out of bed.
“The woman who had the flat before me experienced strange things, too.”
He has, he says, seen the male ghost on a stairwell outside his Midlands Heart housing association property, but the spook’s wife has yet to venture out.
Now, Ron wants West Midlands Ghost Club to investigate, but he has ruled out an exorcism.
There’s a much simpler solution, he argues. Just buy a bigger bed.
