The footage recorded at the building in Shropshire appears to show a very faint shadow ascending the staircase from left to right and then a pile of boxes falling down from the top right of the steps. Market manager Kay Boaky had discovered the recording on CCTV after finding the boxes strewn across the floor when she arrived at work.
"There was nobody there when the boxes fell off," she said. "We watched it again and we could see the shadow walking up the stairs then chucking the boxes over." It isn't the first such incident to occur at the market either, over the years there have been reports of doors slamming shut on their own and phantom coughing sounds being heard when nobody else was in the building. Some things have to be seen to be believed.
Which is perhaps unfortunate for anyone trying to prove that Wellington Indoor Market is haunted.
A ‘probably explainable’ video has been posted on YouTube, sort of showing what could possibly be construed as a ghost-like figure making its way up the stairs and pulling some boxes over in the Victorian building in Telford, Shropshire.
The events were captured at 2.22am on May 4, according to Town and Country Markets, which posted the video. Though the time and date – much like the ghost – can’t be seen just before the boxes fall.
Market manager Kay Boaky is certainly a believer. Kay said after finding boxes all over the floor that morning, they went straight to CCTV to see if there had been an intruder.
‘We couldn’t believe what we saw. All the hairs stood up on the back of my neck,’ Kay told the Shropshire Star.
‘There was nobody there when the boxes fell off. We watched it again and we could see the shadow walking up the stairs then chucking the boxes over.’
The video, which asks ‘did you see it?’, has sparked some comments.
