Playful poltergeist Nanny Goony haunting Scottish sweet shop

A SWEET-TOOTHED ghost has whipped up a storm in a teacup at a village cafe.
The friendly "Casper" likes to move sweet jars and other goodies around the tearoom in the night.
But the playful poltergeist sometimes makes an appearance during the day.
Laura McKirdy and her mum Fiona believe they are being haunted by an old lady dubbed Nanny Goony by folk in Cardross, Dunbartonshire.
Laura said: "I had just locked the door one evening when a jar of lollipops went crashing to the floor.
"I thought I'd just pick them all up in the morning but, when I came back, they were back in the jar and stood upright. Other spooky happen-ings include sweets moving on their own, pictures falling off the wall and crumbs appearing on newly wiped tables.
Fiona said: "One time we heard the sound of legs moving under a table, but there was nobody there."
The cafe owners called in the Scottish Society for Psychical Research to investigate.
Paranormal expert Ron Halliday described the goings-on as typical poltergeist activity.
He said: "It could be that it is a trapped soul who is trying to send a message to the owners themselves."
Laura added:"She doesn't seem to mean any harm. She's a very friendly ghost - I wouldn't stay here if she wasn't."


A genuine Poltergeist case or something more mundane?. What do our members think?.

I'm guessing you're not impressed with the evidence DB Very Happy

I don't think the owners would hoax this though, as it wouldn't be good for business; I don't think people would want their children going to the sweet shop with a spook Laughing

There are more ways to explain this other than 'ghost did it' or 'hoax'.

Probably any one of these things, but when you stack them all on top of each other it makes you wonder - and there was probably much more.

I'd enjoy going to this cafe and checking it out myself.
You never know, maybe it is a ghost/poltergeist.

You could try a traditional Scottish breakfast for starters followed by a cardiac arrest Very Happy

It may be a poltergeist but I think the truth lies with the living not the dead.
