Lisa Way, who lives in Ely, said she was taking action to exorcise the demon spirits that plague the home she shares with her two teenage daughters – after a recent visit from a pastor failed to do the trick.
The ghostly goings-on began three weeks ago, on her daughter’s 14th birthday.
She said: “We had been seeing things out of the corner of our eye for a while.
“But on that day things started getting weirder. I started feeling cold air on my face. I saw white light flash by the door. We started taking pictures with our camera phones – and the strangest things started showing up. Arms coming round doors, legs coming down the stairs.”
“I said ‘we need to get out of here right now’. We haven’t slept here since.”
She said that the most frightening incident was a few nights after the birthday, when Lisa approached her front door – and saw a man staring at her from the front window.
Since then there have been lights that turn on and off by themselves, kettles that turn on in the middle of the night and the sound of children running around upstairs.
Lisa said she was desperate for the council to move her out of the house, in Marcross Road, Ely, where she has lived happily for more than 10 years until she realised it was haunted. “I spoke to the council and said we can’t stay here – but they don’t have a policy for dealing with haunted houses. They gave me a business card for a pastor. He blessed the house but it only made things worse.”
The family has turned to mediums Richard Oliver and Christopher Rees, better known as Paranormal Wales.
A spokeswoman for Cardiff council confirmed it did not have a policy for dealing with paranormal activity and they had not received notice from the tenant she wished to move houses.
