Twilight Paranormal Investigations - based in Retford - were contacted by a woman in Perth, Australia, claiming a ghost has repeatedly visited her one-year-old daughter.

The group, which has been running for a year, say an online ‘house clearance’ has never been attempted before.

During the spooky consultation the group’s medium will try to communicate with the restless apparition to understand the reason for its visit with the aim of sending it on its way.

Group funder Evan Muckle, from Harworth, told how ghosts often have ‘unfinished business’ going back more than a century in some cases and are unaware that their time has passed.

He said: “Sometimes it’s just a case of showing them the year they’re in - as this spirit could think she’s still in 1892.”

Sales worker Evan, who has been investigating the paranormal for more than 20 years, says the Australian mother of the toddler being haunted has seen the ghostly vision of a young girl in her daughter’s room six or seven times now and is ‘panicking’.

He said: “Spirits sometimes try and interact with children - often because children see them but can’t understand or rationalise what they’re seeing so they don’t dismiss it, unlike adults.”

Evan, 48, who has appeared on TV shows such as Jane Goldman Investigates and Most Haunted Live, said the first apparition he ever saw was his grandmother’s face on his wall when he was 18.

Since then the spirit soother claims to have been involved in more than 40 ‘clearances’ - including one in Retford involving a malevolent presence throwing household items which had to be abandoned for safety reasons.

A recording of the group’s video ghost clearance will be available from 5pm on Thursday (July 9) HERE.
