A mum and daughter have claimed that a bald ghost has been terrorising them for months in their home - even subjecting them to two physical attacks.
Leah Lewis, 21, from Burton-Upon-Trent, Derbyshire has told The Sun how she found an 'unexplainable 15-centimetre scratch' on her left bum cheek, which she believes is the work of an evil spirit that's been haunting the home she lives in with her mum Colette.
As if that wasn't enough, Leah said that the mark occurred not long after her mum was 'physically pinned to her bed' by the spectre and was unable to move or speak for two minutes.
Leah thinks that she gained the marks after attempting to rid the house of the spooky ghost. She said she'd called out 'anything not of light or love is not welcome within the house' as an attempt to banish him.
However, she thinks it was this that caused the ghost to leave the marks on her bum, which still haven't faded.
The retail worker said: "My mum had an experience where she was in bed and suddenly she heard heavy breathing in her ear.
"She tried to shout for me but she couldn't move and couldn't speak and she thinks that lasted a couple of minutes.
"Then suddenly I heard a man's laugh. It was like the spirit found it hilarious that he had scared my mum.
"I think I angered him when I told him to leave as when I got out of the shower I noticed a mark like I had been grabbed or was really badly scratched on my bum.
"I couldn't have bumped into anything as I would have remembered - I got undressed and went into the shower and when I got out I saw it there."
It's apparently the culmination of a series of events that have caused the pair to go as far as calling in a psychic medium to help them rid the house of the spirit.
Leah thinks it first made itself known after haunting her at her place of work in the Octagon Shopping Centre in Burton. She claimed it followed her home and she had her first spiritual encounter over Christmas 2018.
She said: "After the first lockdown, something flew off the shelves at me, which safe to say scared me quite a bit."
Then in June after the two physical encounters, Colette decided to get help in the form of psychic medium Ian Griffiths.
"I could picture a male spirit who was tall and thin, he didn't have much hair on top and had a long grey coat with big boots," the 54 year-old said.
"He seemed angry and frustrated, he probably wanted help crossing over and when it didn't happen he became more vicious."
Thankfully, since Ian has visited the house things seem to have calmed down, but Leah warned others to approach such things with an open mind.
She said: "All I'd say is that you will always be sceptical until you've experienced this yourself."
