A group of ghosthunters carried out a paranormal investigation at a former prison.

About 30 Rutland residents were joined by professional psychics for a night of séances, experiments and vigils at Oakham Enterprise Park.

The night was set up by Spooktacular Events and included paranormal sceptic Mark Webb who has presented several television shows including ITV’s “Haunted Homes”.

Deputy leader of Rutland County Council Terry King (Con) said: “We’re always open to ideas that will generate income and can take place alongside development work.

“The council also welcomes any opportunity to bring new visitors to the area, particularly during the winter months when tourism numbers are lower than other times of the year.”

Feedback from the organisers was positive and some spooky incidents were reportedly observed during the early hours of Sunday morning. A further event is planned January 11.
