A UK man believes he’s filmed a ghost leaving a ‘possessed’ medium’s body.
Tony Ferguson was exploring 16th century Calshot Castle with psychic medium Paul Cissell, when the pair experienced a spine-tingling series of encounters with a ‘controlling spirit’.
Personal trainer Tony first filmed what he believes to be a misty white ghost flying straight at his camera while alone in a pitch black room of the old artillery fort.
“Paul was in the other room and I was trying to communicate with something,” Tony said. “I had felt something come into the room with me.”
“I was asking it to show itself and this white mist flew straight at my camera. You can see it almost reaching out like a hand.”
Moments later, he joined Paul in an adjoining room but claims the medium was acting strangely and didn’t seem to be himself.
In the eerie footage above, Paul can be heard explaining to Tony a strange sensation down one side of his body and a feeling that he might pass out.
Then suddenly a white mist – much like the one captured earlier by Tony – appears to emanate from the psychic’s body before Paul declares ‘and it’s gone’.
The duo were so shaken by the events that Paul and Tony decided it best to flee the castle and the hostile ghost, who they believe to have once been a keeper on the 1539 fort.
“I could tell as soon as I saw him [Paul] that he didn’t seem himself, it was something in his eyes. It’s like he was in a daze,” Tony said.
“Then suddenly the same white mist flew out of his body and at that exact moment he said ‘it’s gone’. I actually saw whatever had been possessing him leave his body.
“It was amazing but also really weird and quite frightening. Paul told me the spirit was once the keeper of the castle and he was angry that we were there.At
“It was obvious from the ghost’s controlling behaviour that he wanted us to leave.
“You do get controlling and hostile spirits and for the most part they’re not dangerous but when it comes to people getting possessed it is scary no matter how experienced you are with the paranormal.”
Calshot Castle was constructed between 1539 and 1540 by Henry VIII as part of the King’s Device programme to protect against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire.
While many visitors to the English Heritage site have claimed to have seen a ghostly gentleman wondering the halls, Tony believes he and Paul are the first to conduct a paranormal investigation of the fort.
