The Birmingham Mail cites a 2013 unconfirmed story to scare people. Spooky but very contrived – a modern urban legend with no sound evidence that the events related even occurred.
A leading paranormal investigator has scoured a Staffordshire beauty spot following chilling sightings of a spectre known locally as The Black Eyed Child.
Lee Brickley launched an in-depth investigation of Cannock Chase after reports that the ghoulish apparition has returned to the sprawling heathland.
The child was last spotted 30 years ago, sparking worldwide interest – and is today a cult internet sensation.
There have been similar sightings of Black Eyed Children around the world.
“Some people believe them to be extra-terrestrials, vampires or ghosts,” said Lee.
Cannock must be a weird place. Not only do they have undead ghostly black eyed girls hanging around, they also have pig faced men roaming the streets, as Lee Brickley has shown us previously!
