"Ghostbuster called in after sewage workers stalked by 'zombie' in underground tunnels"
It sounds like something out of a Hollywood blockbuster.
But staff at a sewage works have called in a ghostbuster because they are being stalked by a zombie-like figure who roams the underground tunnels.
Workers at Southern Water's treatment plant in Eastbourne, East Sussex, said they have been scared to enter tunnels after being followed about by a "humanoid figure" as they went about their jobs.
Mark Wey, a sewage treatment worker, got permission from his bosses to hire a paranormal investigator to launch an investigation into the sewage spirits.
Mr Wey hired parapsychologist Michael Kingscote who paid the tunnels a visit.
The clairvoyant said: "There seems to be one particular area that's giving people the creeps. People have seen and felt things."
