The English teacher I had two years running when I was at school was completely convinced that ghosts were real. She was quite cool actually, we did drama most of the time. Anyway, in the city centre, there's this place called Galleries of Justice and it's supposed to be haunted (was an old courtroom and prison, lots of people hung on the steps, you can still see where the platform used to be). My English teacher once had a seance in the courtroom and accourding to her it got really creepy and she swore she saw a ghost of this lady. We spend an entire term scripting an episode for a haunted tv show and got to film it. As a result I've found a love for reading about hauntings and ghosts.
