Brian Willcox tells more ghost stories

Resource Type: Audio | Posted on 21st September 2012 by Liam Physick

Brian Willcox tells two more ghost stories. On one occasion, his wallet went missing from his pocket, and he and his wife looked all over - including three times in his pocket - without success, so Brian reported his wallet’s disappearance to the police, only to then discover that his wallet had been in his pocket all along! At another time, the postman pushed four letters through the letter box only for them to end up in a neat pile on the table!

Jodie: Yeah, yeah, must have been. There must, there must be other people that have experienced it, musn’t there?

Brian: But all, all these, all these stories I’ve got, I’ve always had someone with me, I’ve never been on me own, so as, you know, people can say, “Oh, you must have been imagining it”.

Jodie: Yeah, yeah, it’s not like you’ve got loads of ghost stories that you just happen to, you know what I mean . . .

Jodie: Yeah.
