A family scared out of their own home have become so desperate that they had an exorcism carried out.
On one occasion Hayley Keating’s son, Oscar, screamed in terror because he was sharing a bath with a boy with black hair.
She and her boyfriend Michael Roberts, 19, also claim to have heard strange noises in the night and their TV turned itself on in the early hours of the morning.
They have now called on Father Christopher Cunningham to perform an exorcism at their home in Warrington, Cheshire.
She said: ‘It all started a couple of weeks ago. We were sound asleep in bed and the TV remote was on the floor.
‘All of a sudden we were woken up because it had turned itself on and was on full volume. We’d been watching a bit of TV the night before but we’d had it on really quietly.
‘We scrambled for the remote and turned it off and we didn’t really think much of it at the time.
‘Then an hour later, at about 5am, Oscar woke us up shrieking in his bedroom.
‘He was really distressed and it was nothing like I’d ever heard before but I eventually managed to calm him down and he went back to sleep.
‘The next night, we were woken up again by strange knocking. It sounded like it was coming from the bedside table but there was nobody there.
‘The following day I came home from work and found the washing basket turned upside down and it was in a different place to where I’d left it.
‘The DVDs on top of Oscar’s cupboard had fallen off and were lying all over the floor. It looked as though something had been thrown at them.’
On another occasion Oscar was in the bath. ‘I heard him say “no, they are my toys” and I thought he was just talking to himself,’ Hayley said.
‘He said it a few more times and started to become really agitated. I thought it was strange so I stuck my head round the door to see if he was alright.
‘He had his back to the taps and his knees up and he said ‘somebody is in my bath. He was really upset and told me it was a boy with black hair.’
Three days after the exorcism, Michael said ‘things have calmed down’ since Fr Cunningham visited their home.
Fr Cunningham, from St Albans Church in Warrington, Cheshire, arrived at the home on Friday, where he sprayed holy water in each room and said the Lord’s Prayer.
He said: ‘I do this quite often. It has become more popular but usually it’s for people who have moved into a new home and want it blessed.’link
