REPORTS that a poltergeist case in Rutherglen is being investigated by police has made headlines around the world, revealing a widespread interest in the phenomenon.

Such ghostly behaviour is often attributed to mental health issues of the humans witnessing the activity but in the Rutherglen incident police officers reportedly saw evidence of the paranormal.

They apparently witnessed clothes sailing across a room, lights going off for no reason, and a dog, which had been romping in the garden, suddenly appearing atop a seven foot hedge.

The woman and her teenage son who were living in the house had endured two days of weird incidents before calling the police in distress.

According to the Daily Record, in a story that has been picked up globally, a police source said: “Officers with more than 20 years’ service are saying they’ve never seen anything like this. It really is something that down-to-earth police officers are having trouble getting their heads round. How do you handle what, despite us not liking to use the word, has been described as a poltergeist?”

On the request of the police and the support of the family, a priest from the Roman Catholic Church has since visited the house to perform a “blessing”.
