Poltergeists doubted by local residents
Public gives their view on ghost reports
There’s something strange in the neighbourhood, but Rutherglen residents ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
Last week’s Reformer told how a family on Stonelaw Road were apparently being terrorised by paranormal activity, with events taking place that left local cops stunned when they were called in.
They found clothes flying across the room and oven doors closing and opening.
It even prompted a TV medium to contact the paper and offer his help.
We went out to Stonelaw Road to ask locals if they believed in the supernatural – and they were unanimous in not believing.
Stuart Thomson said: “I believe it’s all nonsense. I work at the old fire station down on Central Street and that’s supposed to have ghosts, but I’ve been there 26 years and never seen anything, so there’s been nothing to change my mind.”
Carol Hannah said: “I don’t believe in them at all. Seeing is believing, so if I don’t see it I don’t believe in it. I’d need to see something that was 100 per cent proof, like an actual video, before I’d believe in them.”
Brian Stewart said: “I’ve never seen anything like ghosts so I don’t believe in them. There’s no point in being afraid of something that you don’t know exists.”
Catherine McGinity said: “I do believe in certain things but I’m not sure I’d go as far as poltergeists or ghosts. I’d need to actually see something before believing it all.”
