A petrified mum who begged to be moved from her home because it was HAUNTED is sleeping easy again – after the spirit of her late grandfather SCARED away 50 ghosts.
Stacey McGill, 29, applied to her housing association to give her a new house after a series of spooky goings-on.
Lights would flick on and off, the microwave had a mind of its own, and Stacey could hear the ghost shouting and screaming in the night.
After calling in a medium, she found out she’d been living with a ghoul called Nigel, an alcoholic ghost with learning disabilities.
But when she called in paranormal expert Don Philips to help rid her home of Nigel he discovered she was actually living with 50 other ghosts – including eight who died of the plague.
Don held a four-hour exorcism at her home with Stacey and incredibly received a message from her late grandfather Barry Laywood who died of lung cancer in 2009 aged 79.
During the session, Barry, who ran a cleaning company, promised to evict the pesky ghouls.
Two days later her home in Loughborough, Leics., was no longer haunted.
Yesterday Stacey said: “I always had a feeling my granddad was here, so I’m overjoyed.
“We spoke to him and he said, ‘You don’t need to worry about those evil forces anymore, they’re never coming back.’
“He threatened them with violence but never had to resort to it because they were scared and left.
“Granddad told me there was no way he would ever let them hurt me or Chelsey.
“He said ‘I love you and I will always stay with you.’
“I grew up living with my nan and granddad, and I was always his favourite.
“Even though he’s dead he is still looking after me, he has to be the best granddad anyone could ask for.
“I really wanted to be out of here when Nigel started playing up, which was a shame because we haven’t been here long.
“But thanks to granddad we can stay put, which is great because my daughter is really happy.”
Stacey moved into the house before Christmas and first started hearing things go bump in the night in January before eventually becoming too scared to be in the house on her own.
Since her grandfather came to the rescue, his widow Sally, 80, now regularly drops by to have a cuppa with her late husband.
Stacey added: “It’s become a real comfort to nan because they were married for 45 years.
“She often comes by just to feel granddad’s presence. It’s like he’s looking after us both now.”
Professional Ghost buster Don added: “I was expecting to have only one ghost on my hands, but it turned out there were loads of them.
“The plague victims suffered so badly that two of them died by hanging themselves.
“It’s no wonder there were so many weird things going on in the house, there were so many ghosts in there you could have started five football teams.
“The ghost of Barry has really come to the rescue. He is still looking out for his granddaughter.”
