Over the course of the next few days, I continued to record as and when things happened, but I was unable to find anything of note on the videos when I went through them. It was around a week before something happened that I had proof of. On the 18th of July, I got caught something stranger than I had before.

I’d been sat watching TV in the evening when I started to hear a consistent banging. This was going on for several minutes when I decided to grab my camera and begin to film. The banging, or thudding, didn’t seem to be coming from anywhere in particular. I sat for a while on the sofa while talking about what I’d been experiencing and listened to the noise.

Rewind a little bit to earlier that day. I’d experienced a few things throughout the day. I’d seen a shadow stood by the front door when I’d come out of the bathroom at one point. While I’d been watching TV, there had also been a shadow in the corner of the room, like someone was silently watching me.

While I filmed, the noise continued, and I decided to get up and walk around the flat to see if I could figure out where it was coming from. As I moved around, the noise seemed to come from all over the place. No matter where I went, the noise didn’t change in level or how it was occurring. I spent some time standing in the hallway and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from.

After another few minutes, I walked into the spare room, and the banging stopped as if something just wanted me to go in there.

At one point while I’m filming, I walked out of the spare room, across the hallway and to the lounge. Something made me turn around – I heard a shuffling noise – and I see the spare room door swinging open. Something had caused the door to swing closed behind me. It hadn’t caught, so it was swinging slowly open again.

Everything in the flat seems to go quiet as it had done before, and a heavy feeling seem to fall on me. Then, after a few seconds of investigating the door, I heard a bang coming from the main bedroom – my bedroom. I turned to see what it was, but I couldn’t work it out.

I start to feel like something is messing me. Like whatever this is is leading me around the flat and getting me to go where it wants to. I found out later on that when I mention this, there is distortion on the video, the same that there had been previously when things had been happening.

By this point, I’m walking around the flat in the dark, and the strange feeling is only increasing in intensity.

Around eight minutes into recording, I hear a noise in the kitchen – it sounds like my pot of cutlery is moved and rattles. Something makes me turn back to the spare room, and the camera starts to go in and out of focus on the corner where I have sensed things previously.

I continued to record in the dark while things continued to lead me around the flat, and I struggle to figure out what’s happening.

Once again, the banging starts up again in a similar pattern to before, and it still feels like it’s coming from all around.

With everything that’s happening, I decided to stop filming and see if things calmed down. Instead of going through this video at the time, I uploaded it straight to YouTube.

Things in the flat seemed to be escalating, and I didn’t really know what to do with that other than to keep trying to gather evidence and work out what was going on.

Later on when I did finally watch the video though. As I go through it, I’m amazed at everything that I see and hear happening, even though I’d just experienced it in real-time. I was so happy that I’d caught as much as I had, but I hadn’t finished yet.

Around eleven and a half minutes into the video, I hear a sound. I increased the volume as much as I could and put on my headphones so that I could get a clearer listen to what it was. After repeated listens, I decide that I can hear the word “us”. This sent a chill through me. Did it mean that there was more than one of whatever was in the flat? Or was it just another way to mess with me?

After the word, I can hear a wooshing noise and some sort of click or snap, which I can’t really work out.

About a minute after the spoken word, the banging starts again, and the video ends. I sat back, amazed at all that I had caught in such a short space of time.

The banging continued for probably another half an hour or so before stopping and ending for the night.

Later that night, early in the next morning, I would record again.


To be continued next week.
