A family in Newcastle are asking to be moved to a new home because their current home is haunted. We’ve seen a few of these here on In Pure spirit including a Coventry family who wanted to blame the death of their dog on ghosts and the media are certainly beginning to suggest that new council houses can be won by drumming up a ghost story.
Kim Dunster and Matthew White, however, have a video of their haunting – and I’m not talking about moving chairs. Currently, you can see it on The Sunday Sun newspaper. The video is set to autoplay, don’t these papers get the internet, so either have the sound off or make sure you’re able to have random sounds bubbling out of your computer.
This blogger can’t find the video on YouTube. Dunster and White may have “released” it exclusively to the newspaper. The video shows orbs appear and then move.
The usual explanations apply. Most experts agree that orbs are particles of dust reflecting light back to the camera. In fact, when put on the spot by the paper, Paul Green of Extreme Ghost Hunting, did not take the chance to associate himself with a media covered ghost story. He said;
“I didn’t sense anything unusual in the room. The orbs are transparent, you can see the room through them. Most orbs that are spirits are more solid as they are energy.”
The family point out they have a young life at stake here. They’ve described an incident to the paper in which their baby had been pointing around the room and then, at one point, held his hands around his neck and screamed.
Are the ghosts trying to strangle baby Thomas?
Matthew White told the paper;
“I’ve never believed in ghosts but I just can’t explain this. There’s a chill in Thomas’s room and we get goosebumps when we’re in there.”
Thomas does seem to be in the centre of disturbance. Mother Kim noted;
“We’ve filmed in other rooms of the house but the orbs only show up in Thomas’s room.”
The housing management firm responsible for the house, Your Homes Newcastle, have confirmed they’ve been asked by the couple to find a new home for them, they’ve described the video footage as “inconclusive” and have stressed they are offering advice and support to Miss Dunster and her family.
Your Homes Newcastle, however, point out that none of the previous residents have made similar reports nor have there been any reported encounters nearby.
Kim Dunster knows of nearby problems, though. She said;
“A lady at the bus stop said she lived in the house next door and her daughter’s toys under the bed used to move at night.”
Their home is a bungalow in Newbiggin Hall in Newcastle. It was built in 1964. Newbiggin is not a small area. Some simple internet research has unearthed a mysterious death, murder, or two.

What do you think? Is the family really haunted? Do they really think they are haunted?
Or is this just an attempt to move to a different, hopefully better, house?
