Is there life after death is probably one of the biggest unanswered questions in the universe but on Halloween it is believed the veil between the two worlds is dropped.

Mercury reporter Eleanor Young met up with members of Paranormal Investigations North Somerset to do a walk through of the newly-refurbished Weston Museum and hunt for spirits.

On Halloween night (October 31) I met up with some of the group members and its founder David Cooke at the museum, in Burlington Street, to see what secrets we could uncover.

We completed a walk around the museum where some members came felt a strong force behind them.

We then moved on to complete a Ouija board and a planchette where I was introduced to two spirits, called George Turner and Richard.

After reviewing the footage they captured on the walk around, David told me: “I saw a figure up on the balcony through a reflection in the windows downstairs, but it was not visible straight on.

“George had us running around the building and showing us where he had worked within it. He is a playful spirit I think while Richard I feel is from the World War Two era

“We also made contact with a 12-year-old boy called Peter, but we did not really make any head way with him.

“All in all it was a productive night.”
