It certainly sounds like something from a novel.

Off topic - but just seen this article in the Sun. Not sure where to put it but it's a bit weird.

I did wonder if this was a completely made-up story - perish the thought that The Sun would do anything like that though - but this charmer does appear to exist. 

Don't give up the day job - if you have one - Steven.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was all set up deliberately to get back to the 'troll' issue and how they are all 'twisted' etc...

Clarence back as the 'spokesperson' I see.

He was probably there that night...

He was on stage afterwards as 'Clare'. Very Happy

Mods - you might want to create a new thread in latest news regarding this story.

Then again you might not.

I think the rest of the MSM will be getting this out today....

Stories that are crazy even by usual tabloid standards

Post  Freedom on Wed 08 Jun 2016, 11:18 am

I had hoped this was too bonkers for anyone other than The Sun.

I'll open a topic about particularly barking mad stories.

This and previous posts split from the Questions and Answers topic.

I know this is a non/rubbish story...

But the chap/drag/it involved has issued an apology on FB...

Steven Irvine
Yesterday at 02:25 ·
So everyone will probably see me on the paper today.
I am sorry to those I have offended. I did take the performance a little too far ( btw I didn't have a knife. The bouncers wouldve killed me before the doll. )
While on that note of saying sorry, drag is intended to offend, shock, put dark situations in a fantasy setting so people can deal with their own issues.
It's full of errors and lies which is to be expected.
The reporter was also a really creepy stalker who found me staying at a friends house. How did he even do that???

Police baffled by levitating Chihuahua

Police left baffled by paranormal events at family home that saw a chihuahua 'levitate on to a 7ft hedge'

08:20, 13 AUG 2016 UPDATED 08:43, 13 AUG 2016
BY JANE HAMILTON

Officers called for help from church after being spooked by series of unexplained events that included clothes flying across room and oven door opening and closes


The house in Rutherglen, Glasgow, has officers spookedThe house in Rutherglen, Glasgow, has officers spooked

Hardened police officers were left spooked after witnessing bizarre 'paranormal' activity at a family home.

After a call out in Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire officers witnessed clothes flying across a room and lights going off and on.

Lampshades were placed upside down and oven doors were opening and closing.

Even a chihuahua dog which was playing in the garden was then inexplicably discovered sitting on top of a seven-foot hedge.

The family who live at the property had called the police in a panic. They endured two days of the bizarre occurrences before moving out of the property, report the Daily Record.

The situation has been discussed at high levels within Police Scotland, with senior officers perplexed as to how they best handle the incidents.

The house in Rutherglen, Glasgow, has officers spooked
A police source said: “These were incidents that were witnessed by our own officers. Incidents that are not easily explained.

“One problem we’ve got is where we go from here as no crime has been established, so what else can we do but deal with any reports of disturbances.

“But officers with more than 20 years’ service are saying they’ve never seen anything like this. It really is something that down-to-earth police officers are having trouble getting their heads round.

“How do you handle what, despite us liking to use the word, has been described as a poltergeist.”

A priest has been to the house in Stonelaw Road and performed what has been described as a ‘blessing’ at the property.

The saga unfolded when the family, a woman and her son in his early teens, contacted police on Monday and Tuesday to report ‘disturbing incidents’ in her home.

A chihuahua was found on a hedge in a series of bizarre events
The woman and the teenager, described as extremely distressed, had been experiencing violent and unexplained circumstances and in desperation contacted police.

A source said: “The officers attended expecting it to be a mental health issue but they witnessed the lights going off, clothes flying across the room and the dog sitting on top of the hedge.

“The officers called their superiors who also attended thinking the cops were perhaps being a bit silly but it’s being taken very seriously.

“The fact it was witnessed by our officers has lent itself to a very different but active inquiry.”

With no reasonable explanation for what they witnessed police, acting with the support of the family, contacted the Catholic Church who sent a priest to bless the house.

No-one has been harmed, though the family were given safety advice by baffled officers and chose to leave the house. They are understood to be living with relatives.

The source added: “The main concern is with the family’s welfare and well-being but with no crime committed and no culprit we are at a loss how to proceed with it. Inquiries are ongoing but it’s difficult to know where to go with it.”

Police are understood to be looking into the family’s background, and working with doctors and social services to provide support.

They are also thought to be checking the history of the property, to see if there been any reports of similar occurrences from previous residents.

Our source said all options were being considered by way of explaining the goings-on: “Is it some form of hoax, or is it real or not real? These are the questions being asked by officers but without coming to any conclusion.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: “On 8 and 9 August police attended a house in Rutherglen to reports of a disturbance. No evidence of criminality was found and advice and guidance was given to the family.”

The Catholic Church was approached for comment but failed to respond.

I'd be grateful that it wasn't something enormous like a Great Dane or an Irish Wolfhound.

Sorry, I'm going to be first with this - it sounds like a shaggy dog story anyway.

He shouted down expecting an echo, but got a reply from James Thompson, 51
James had been missing from his Plymouth home for more than a month
Despite a huge police hunt, he was found by chance close to death by a teenager
