Has a ghost been caught on camera in this museum?

CCTV footage of books and leaflets "flying off the shelves" is being touted as showing possible paranormal activity at a museum in Devon.

Caught on camera, here is the moment a stack of leaflets flew off a shelf in Torquay Museum's shop.

A museum staff member heads over to investigate, but when he bends down to pick up the leaflets, another stack flies off, hitting him in the head.

"The first batch of leaflets that fall off could conceivably have just slipped, whereas the second batch that come down on David’s head appear to have been thrown" - the Museum said.

So, is this the work of a ghost? Watch and judge for yourself:

Posting on their Facebook page, the museum says it's not the first time the site has seen some spooky goings on.

There have been a number of incidents of books and leaflets flying of the shelves in the Museum’s bookshop, and there has been a long list of unexplained activity at Torquay Museum over the past few years.

Police have issued a warning as preparations are underway for what's expected to be the biggest-ever halloween celebrations seen in the region.

The Devon and Cornwall force has issued posters for those who don't want to be bothered by trick-or-treaters. They're calling on revellers to remember that their behaviour could upset elderly and vulnerable people.

"People do get a bit concerned about the antics and groups of children, young people wandering around out and about on the streets. It's not as big an issue because I think we've made a consistent message over the last few years which is one about being safe and feeling safe. So I think people are getting the message and are starting to have fun rather than create problems for other people."
