During a recent "Haunted Happenings" ghost-hunting vigil held in Mansfield, UK this month, Katy Morritt, a 19-year-old waitress who attended the event with her father, captured the face of a ghost and the sound of a murdered child on photo and video.

Miss Morritt, pictured centre in the striped scarf, said she also captured a chilling child's scream on her video of the grade-II listed building, known as The Village. She is pictured with her fellow ghost hunters.

The "Village" where the "Haunted Happenings" tours occur has a reputation for being a very active site of paranormal activity; many people claim to have spotted spirits of men, women and children there. For example, a paranormal investigator Lee Roberts claims to have captured the spirits of seven dead monks on camera in the form of swirling mist inside a 19th century building there in April 2016. 

The lower floor of the slaughterhouse in "The Village" is thought to be haunted by the malevolent spirit of a man and children who are seen to be running around on the lower floor.  

Although she didn't realize it the night of the vigil, Katy Morritt, did capture a photo of a ghostly face, as well as a video of a blood-chilling scream coming from the ghost of a murdered child. While reviewing her photos and film the next morning, Katy was stunned to spot an eerie face peering out from a pillar in one picture, and a 'piercing cry of a child' on the video.

When asked about it, Ms. Morritt believes that the ghost hunters called forward the spirit child and his killer when they took part in a table-tipping event designed to invoke the spirits of those long dead. There is a legend of a woman named Catherine who was murdered at 'The Village' along with her child. Ms. Morritt believes she captured the cry of the little boy and his killer in her film footage. When asked about her discovery, Ms. Morritt said: "My blood ran cold when I listened back to the footage."

Hazel Ford, the founder of the "Haunted Happenings" tours, said that she was shocked at the clarity of Ms. Morritt's footage.

"Haunted Happenings" has many more overnight ghost hunts planned for 2017 at "The Village", so there are many more opportunities for people to capture more evidence of paranormal activity at this location.
