Medium-sized grants

Two psychics have been given government funding to teach people how to “communicate with the dead”. Paul and Deborah Rees have been awarded £4,500 under the Government’s Want2Work job creation scheme, reports the Daily Telegraph.

The couple, from Bridgend, South Wales, will use it to instruct people on how to contact friends and relatives “on the other side”.

Critics are astonished at the award by the Department of Work and Pensions bureaucrats, and the Welsh Assembly has launched an investigation.

The mediums insist the “mere £4,500” of public money will be put to good use at their centre, the Accolade Academy of Psychic and Mediumistic Studies.

Ghost Photo?


An eerie image of a figure in period costume has spooked experts investigating apparent photographic evidence of ghosts. The picture, taken in May 2008, appears to show a man or woman in a ruff peering out of a barred window at Tantallon Castle.

No mannequins or costumed guides are employed at the castle, and three photographic experts have confirmed that no digital trickery was used on the photo.

Even confirmed ghost sceptic Professor Richard Wiseman, who led the study, admitted being puzzled. “It is certainly very curious,” he said. “We ran it by three photographic experts and they said it hadn’t been Photoshopped at all. The figure appears to be in period costume, but we know 100% that Tantallon Castle is not the sort of place that has dummies or costumed guides – they just don’t go in for that sort of thing.”
