There is still no ex­pla­na­tion for the ap­par­ent ‘poltergeist ac­tiv­ity’ wit­nessed at a Ruther­glen house by po­lice of­fi­cers.

The in­ci­dent, which took place last week on Stonelaw Road, has cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the world but has left a fam­ily ter­ri­fied.

Mys­tery con­tin­ues to sur­round an ap­par­ent ‘poltergeist’ in­ci­dent in a Ruther­glen house last week as po­lice con­firmed they are no longer in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

It was re­ported on Satur­day that po­lice had been called to the house on Stonelaw Road by ter­ri­fied Cather­ine Shree­nan af­ter a se­ries of bizarre events.

Ex­pect­ing to find a ra­tio­nal ex­pla­na­tion, the of­fi­cers were left stunned to wit­ness clothes fly­ing across a room and oven doors ap­par­ently open­ing and clos­ing on their own.

Lights went off and the shades on the lamps were up­side down when they came back on.

And a chi­huahua which had been play­ing in the gar­den was dis­cov­ered sit­ting on top of a 7ft hedge, with no ex­pla­na­tion of how it got there.

The in­ci­dent has cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of peo­ple all over the world, but there is still no sign of an ex­pla­na­tion.

Po­lice con­firmed to the Reformer they were no longer in­ves­ti­gat­ing and were not look­ing at the his­tory of the prop­erty.

The Catholic Church is be­lieved to be of­fer­ing care and sup­port to Cather­ine, who moved out to her mother’s with her teenage son.

A priest is be­lieved to have been brought in to the house to per­form a bless­ing.

Cather­ine said at the week­end: “It’s placed enor­mous stress on the fam­ily.

“I’ve had peo­ple, teenagers, go­ing past my home singing Ghost­busters.

“We don’t want peo­ple com­ing to our house. You can imag­ine the stress we have been un­der.”

With of­fi­cial author­i­ties stumped as to how to ap­proach the in­ci­dent, para­nor­mal ex­perts have been of­fer­ing their help to the fam­ily.

Ally Key, who has ap­peared on TV, likened the in­ci­dent to the plot of hor­ror move the En­field poltergeist, an in­ci­dent in Eng­land that was later made into a film.

He told the Reformer he and his small team spe­cialises in “en­ergy clear­ance and spir­i­tual re­lease”, adding: “We are all about help­ing peo­ple and we can help this woman in a pro­fes­sional man­ner, if she wants our help.

“We have helped peo­ple in this sit­u­a­tion be­fore. A lot of para­nor­mal groups will be in­ter­ested in this who say they want to help, but they can’t ac­tu­ally help. We have the equip­ment and are a proper in­ves­ti­ga­tion team.”

Cops were called to the house on Au­gust 8 and 9 and the The Reformer un­der­stands at least three of­fi­cers wit­nessed the strange oc­cur­rences.

A source said: “Po­lice at­tended won­der­ing if there were men­tal health is­sues, but it turns out things were mov­ing around. She thought if she got other peo­ple to wit­ness it, it would stop, but it hasn’t.

“Ev­ery­one is talk­ing about it. You would hope it has a ra­tio­nal ex­pla­na­tion, but we just don’t know what’s hap­pen­ing. There is no ev­i­dence of crim­i­nal­ity so there isn’t a lot else we can do.”

“It’s not a route we would nor­mally go down but she may need to get a medium in or some­thing like that.”

A spokes­woman for Po­lice Scot­land said they had at­tended and of­fered ad­vice, but were not in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent.

A spokes­woman for the Dio­cese of Mother­well said: “The dio­cese doesn’t nor­mally com­ment on pas­toral sup­port of­fered to parish­ioners”
