Ghosthunters find lost souls in old Cleethorpes hotel
GHOSTHUNTERS claim to have found the spirits of a missing fisherman and a sobbing pregnant woman in an old Cleethorpes hotel.
They descended on the Imperial Hotel, in Grimsby Road, Cleethorpes, in search of things that go bump in the night – and claim they definitely found them!
Adrian Fuller is a psychic medium and co-founder of the Paranormal Tetney Ghost Hunting Events Lincolnshire group, which organised the overnight event.
He told how he detected a fisherman and his wife who were unconnected to the building – but actually linked to one of the people on the investigation.

"I picked up an old fisherman called Scott Fletcher, aged 68, and his wife Reeney. He told me he had died in 1962 – which I thought was strange because that section of the building closed in 1942," said Mr Fuller.
"That's when one of the ladies came forward and said she knew a Reeney and her husband Scott when she was younger.
"Apparently, Scott's car was found abandoned and he was never seen again."
Other members of the team reported being touched by unseen hands; two felt themselves being pushed against a wall and another felt her hair being pulled while walking in the disused attic.
"Some people may be sceptical, but these were not mediums – they were normal members of the public," Adrian said.
It was also said the group also met the spirit of a pregnant woman, believed to be a maid, who was sobbing in one of the rooms.
The group has suspected the Imperial was haunted for some years, after landlords past and present reported strange goings-on, including footsteps that sounded like a child running, doors being slammed and beer and gas taps being turned on and off – while no one was in the cellar.
It's not the first time the group has investigated the building – last month, two members became separated from the group and at exactly the same time, one woman had her skirt pulled while another felt a sudden tug on her hair.
Member Paul Johnson, 58, of Grasby, said: "Last time I walked around the building, it felt as though someone was trying to push me out of one of the rooms – they didn't want me to be in there."
During this latest investigation, the team used heat sensors, electromagnetic field (EMF) readers, hyper-sensitive sound recorders and infra-red cameras.
Mr Fuller said: "The EMF readers are particularly effective – sometimes they pick something up in old churches or buildings that have never even had electricity so we know that any disturbance must be something else, that is harder to explain."
