TWO psychic mediums from South Wales have been part of a major paranormal breakthrough at a navy headquarters.
Mediums Barbara Jones, 52, and Gaynor Andrews, 36, were among a six-strong crew which took on a challenge to investigate ghostly goings-on at the Devonport naval base in Plymouth.
With a reputation for weird occurrences, sounds and spiritual sightings, the base has become renowned for the haunting of its hanging cell and the Master Ropemaker's House.
Barbara, of Greenfield Terrace in Abercynon, and Gaynor, of Trallwn, Pontypridd, are back home after the two-day challenge and say their findings will prove exciting.
"As a group we met through our work about six years ago and started performing investigations together about 18 months ago," said Barbara, a community worker.
Among the reported sightings was that of a little girl playing in the Master Ropemaker's House and Barbara confirms that several members of the group were able to make contact with her.
"We conducted seances in the house and I can tell you that the house did in fact vibrate with activity," said Barbara.
"We were able to contact the little girl and we did pick up on the presence of French naval officers who were hanged in the hanging cell."
The group also met with a young woman who had grown up on the base and had agreed to write down her ghostly experiences to be compared against their findings at the end of the investigation.
This too is expected to herald fascinating results.
"We had great coverage using CCTV, night vision cameras, magnetic field monitors and we also took along experiments and toys to try and encourage any poltergeist presence to become active," said Barbara.
"At the moment we are going through the huge amount of information we have and will be compiling our report which will be passed on to Commander Charles Crichton at the base.
"When that is done we will be able to let people know exactly what we discovered because this is all about proving that we do exist after death."
