Ferry Road, Barrow-in-Furness
The following article appeared in the News & Star on 28 April 2006 and was entitled ‘Shipyard Calls In Vicar To Expel Ghost’. I don’t currently know what the outcome of the exorcism was.
STRANGE spirits have scared the life out of BAE shipyard workers, prompting top brass to call in ghost-busting experts.
A specialist in paranormal research and the shipyard’s chaplain, Reverend Di Hervey, will visit the Pipe Shop on Ferry Road next Tuesday to exorcise the spirit.
They have been called in after paranormal occurrences caused things to go bump in the night.
Bizarre behaviour, including a crane jib and other machinery moving by itself, unexplained shadows and an eerie presence, have been witnessed by a number of shipyard workers.
Rumours suggest the ghost may be the spirit of a man who committed suicide at the plant many years ago.
