Its like an octopus is groping me
‘It’s like an octopus,’ she told This Is Kent of the spirit. ‘It started four months ago. I was lying in bed when I felt this creepy pair of hands.‘I kicked frantically and it went away. Next time it came I hurled the duvet on to the floor!
‘But the ghost keeps coming back. I’ve tried sleeping without the duvet. But it started shaking my mattress.
‘I even threw the mattress off the bed and bought a new one but it has made no difference.’
Doris, who accepts many people ‘are going to think I am mad’, emphasised that, despite living alone, she is ‘not lonely’ and feels she may need to ‘call in the Ghostbusters’: ‘I told the vicar and he said it is a lost spirit.
‘What I want to know is, why has it got lost in my flat?’
The curious tale of the Herne Bay haunting comes on the heels of Dianna Carlisle’s story of two spooks she apparently caught having sex in the middle of her living room in Euclid, Ohio.
