'Poltergeist' disturbs Luton restaurant table
CCTV footage from Jimmy’s World Grill and Bar in Luton shows chairs and cutlery moving on their own.
The peculiar footage, which seems to show objects moving by themselves just moments after a customer moves away from the table, appears to have staff members at the eatery genuinely perplexed. The activity begins at around the 50 second mark and is concentrated at the table at the bottom center of the frame.
"The incident was brought to my attention by a customer who was sitting a few tables away and heard a loud crash," said manager Rehan Anwar. "When she turned around there was nobody sat at the table which baffled her. I instantly went over to the table where the incident had taken place to find a broken plate and cutlery on the floor. I didn’t think too much of it at the time but when talking to the staff about it a couple of days later they joked about it being a ghost."
The footage shows the chair, the menu, the napkin and the cutlery all being moved by an unseen force. Unfortunately it's difficult to rule out the possibility of a hoax because it's impossible to see what lies directly in front of the table off camera.
"The suspected ghost or poltergeist has created a lot of interest amongst the staff and it makes locking up at night a little bit scary," said Anwar.
