    The following clarification on the experience mentioned above was e-mailed into the website by a reader:

    ‘This incident is usually given as having taken place in 1963, though I have seen it recorded as early 1967’, it was most definitely 1967. The convent girls in question, were named Elizabeth Wojdyla and Barbara. The account originated with Sean Manchester’s contribution to Peter Underwood’s ‘The vampire’s bedside companion’ (1975). I presume the 1963 date has been
    spread via misprint.

    As to the ‘young girl was attacked and thrown to the ground on Swains Lane in 1971 during the early hours of the morning’, several accounts mention similar instances. See:
