During 2014 and 2015 a number of unexplained events occurred in Bradford City Hall, mainly in areas used by the police. These phenomena included flying objects, cold spots and phantom figures and were attributed to the resident ghost known as ‘Chains Charlie’. What is even more extraordinary is that the activity was witnessed by experienced police officers who were clearly affected by their experiences.
There is a legend that a former prisoner convicted of murder was held in Bradford Police cells and tortured before being sentenced to death. His name was Charles.. It is reported that he returns to City Hall to re-visit the place where he was held and tortured.
The author, Les Vasey, a former police officer and member of the Society of Psychic Research, carried out an in depth investigation into the phenomena. His findings, contained within the book, are extremely difficult to explain in conventional physicalist terms.
The psychic phenomena have continued throughout 2016. Visitors to the museum have continuously encountered unsettling experiences and in city hall the staff captured a ghostly figure on the CCTV camera following a ‘snow storm’ of orbs.
WARNING: these images have an uncanny tendency to take on a ‘life of their own’ so we advise visitors not to download or copy them as they have repeatedly re-appeared on computers and iphones by themselves. This is known as infestation a psychic phenomenon associated with poltergeist activity following investigators.
