Lisa Mannging, partner and two children moved into the end-terrace house in Lilley Close six months ago. Now their dog is dead, their landlords, Whitefriars, have had a priest bless the house, have been told by a medium that their home is a portal and a priest is encouraging the family to wear crucifixes.
There’s more. The family have managed to film what appears to be paranormal activity going on in their Coventry house.
It seems that the visiting medium and the priest are willing to believe that something is wrong with the house. Whitefriars Housing, a social housing unit in Coventry, is also taking the family’s concerns very seriously. Speaking to the Coventry Telegraph, the service manager for the area – David Round – said;
“We first met with Miss Manning in January and our staff have listened to her concerns in a sensitive manner.
“In February, after detailed discussions between Miss Manning and our staff, we agreed to arrange for a priest to attend the property, at her request.
“We have offered advice and support to Miss Manning on the options available to her for applying to move home and we are happy to continue to do this.”
I want to go back to the poor dog. Lisa found the injured dog at the bottom of their steps, took it to the vet but unfortunately the pet died later. The vet believes the dogs injures show it had been shoved.
Someone shoved the dog down the stairs and it died. That’s horrible.
I wonder if it’s horrible enough to make up a story of a ghost and a haunting? Could you fake the video? Sure. We never see the bottom of the chair that moves. The chair moves in the same direction as the cupboard door opens as well. There will certainly be sceptics watching the video who will believe there’s someone to the right of the camera pulling an unseen string.
The end-terrace building looks relatively new. Too new for a ghost? The area the terrace is built-in is interesting. It’s right beside Foleshill Park.
About 20 minutes walk from Lillely Close, on Foleshill Road, there’s a pub called Prince William Henry. There’s been reports of phantom music, a shadowy figure and unexplained laughter coming from the basement there.
In Pure Spirit
What’s your view? Did one of the people in the house push the dog down the stairs, create the ghost story and watch as the whole thing got out of hand? Or do you think the video shows something that can’t be so easily explained?
