Devon and Cornwall police have been called to 30 reports of paranormal activity since 2010, new data has revealed.

The figures released by 17 forces in England and Wales show that hundreds have called 999 to report supernatural activity.

Logs show 277 requests for urgent assistance because of “extra-terrestial” or “paranormal” activity in the last three years across the UK.

In Exeter a woman reported she was ‘being terrorised by witchcraft’ and in Exmouth police attended a man who claimed “There were three children who wanted coffee but the ghosts wouldn't make it for them.” See a full list below

Most complain of ghosts or spirits which have possessed someone.

One train passenger said there were witches and warlocks travelling on a train from Edinburgh to London.

A caller in Hertfordshire told officers their partner was “some kind of vampire”.

One unfortunate man believed there was a ghost in his house and had found blood on the bathroom door. It later turned out his friends had played a prank.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said that officers had responded to calls where there were concerns about the wellbeing of callers.

He said: ‘Police would not attend an incident for the report of paranormal activity. An officer will however attend if there is concern for welfare for either the caller or another individual or where there is reason to believe an offence may have occurred.’

    The only thing the police are good for is a bit of a laugh. I bet these plonkers don't even know that they have had their chain pulled.
