This is the most convincing sighting I've ever seen, if it's genuine.
Well, here it is guys. The documentary is finally online, and boy is it an interesting episode. My only criticism is that the team should have contacted me first in order to find the best locations and present the correct information. However, they've done a fantastic job. Check it out!

The ghostbusters over at Haunted Finders performed a little investigation into Cannock Chase and the black-eyed child sightings recently. Watch the trailer for their Season 2 episode on Cannock Chase below. The full show will be uploaded to YouTube this Friday night at 8pm. Looks like it could be an interesting one.
I'll post an update at the weekend with the full video.

This might be one of the fastest blog posts I've ever typed, and there is a pretty good reason for me wanting to get it online as quickly as possible. At around 9pm tonight (Tuesday 24th March 2015), hundreds of Cannock Chase residents witnessed strange phenomena in the skies. I have to admit that I am among those who bore witness to the event.
Before anything could be seen with the naked eye, there was a deep and very loud drone noise not unlike that you would expect to hear from an old WW2 bomber. After around three minutes, the craft came into sight. It seemed to be incredibly large and astonishingly low in the sky with three red lights that were easily noticeable. The UFO traveled very slowly, and so many people thought it was about to crash to earth. Thankfully, it disappeared out of view without anything too catastrophic happening. The sound from the engine (or whatever it was) lasted for around another five minutes.
Local residents soon turned to Facebook with their questions about the strange craft seen over Cannock Chase. Here are some quotes from their sighting reports...
"It was stupidly loud. My heart is still pounding."
"I heard it and thought that's low..thought it might have been a plane coming down ....it looked like one big thing with 3 lights,,scared the ......outta me."
"Way to slow for fighter jets, it flew directly over our house it made a sharp left turn and carried on"
"My house was rumbling....and i'm still shaking..it was slow and it was bloody huge."
"I heard it. Very low and loud- sounding and seemed to last for about 3 mins. The dog went mad. Unfortunately, I was too lazy and comfortable to get up and look! Very low engine noise. This was by Cannock Cemetery."
"It wasn't a fighter jet. Way to big. Three red lights one at rear one on each wing. Usually commercial planes have flashing lights but this just had three solid red lights. Could have been a large military plane especially with such an unusual flight path."
As you can see from their comments, the whole town is talking about the sighting. Let's look at some of the possible explanations:
- There is currently a US aircraft carrier stationed just off the coast of Portsmouth. It is possible the craft was some kind of top secret plane.
- We can't rule out the possibility that we all saw an airplane in distress that was in fact experiencing engine trouble.
- Lastly, we have to acknowledge the fact that hundreds of people in the Cannock Chase area have just seen a genuine otherworldly UFO.
Getting information out of the military is sometimes tough, but my FOI will be written and emailed off within minutes of finishing this blog post. I'll do my best to get to the bottom of it guys.
With so many UFO sightings during the last couple of years in this area, many people now believe they are from another place. A place we don't even dare to imagine. A place where everything we know about the universe it turned on its head. That's right folks, we're talking about alien planets at the other end of the galaxy. What do you think?
I'll post an update soon!

No doubt some of you will be eagerly awaiting an update on the Cannock Chase sightings that have been piling up during the last few weeks. Thankfully, you'll be getting one very soon. In the meantime though, I'd like to draw your attention towards a fantastic new Mysterious Universe article by author and UFO investigator Nick Redfern. He mentions a sighting report from 2008 that is recorded in one of his books. Astonishingly, the report comes from Cannock Chase, and it seems to describe the same entity we're dealing with today. As most of the people who don't believe this creature exists base their arguments on the fact that it was supposedly created on an internet forum, maybe now is a good time to re-think?
Take a look for yourselves here:
I'll speak to you all again very soon.

Dear Paranormal Pals,
There has been a media storm during the last couple of days concerning some more strange sightings from the Cannock Chase area. As there is so much misinformation out there, I thought it would be a good idea to spend a few moments setting the record straight.
Over the last two months, sightings of a tall, dark and terrifying entity have been flooding in. The fact that so many people witnessed the same thing during such a short period fascinated me. As most of you know already, Cannock Chase is considered by many researchers to be a portal area. A place in which strange and unusual creatures appear at random moments with no explanation.
Now, there is a lot of confusion about the origins of Slender Man, and so I'd like to dispel a few myths. Firstly, it is important to note that many people all over the world claim to have encountered creatures of that description. While the term "Slender Man" may have only been in use since 2009, it is most certainly not a fictional creation. As I have said a few times in media interviews, re-branding happens from time to time in the paranormal world.
I'd like you to consider the idea that whoever "thinks" they created the character in 2009 simply took inspiration from the many sightings that have occurred for the last two thousand years. They came up with the name, and the rest is history. However, you have to acknowledge the fact that their idea was not original, and it had been around under different guises for millennia.
In Germany the entity is referred to as "Der Grossman" or "The Tall Man"
In Holland they call it "Fear Dubh" or "The Black Man"
The entity is even mentioned in some Taino sources (an early Caribbean civilisation) where it is called "Hupia"
I could go on.
As far as the Cannock Chase cases go, it's still early days. I'm monitoring the witnesses to see if the events repeat themselves. However, it looks likely that most of the incidents that happened within local homes can be put down to sleep paralysis. I draw that conclusion based on the circumstances surrounding the events, and the condition and personality of those involved.
The most interesting sightings I've received so far are from people who claim to have seen this tall, dark spectre or monster in the woods. The reason they fascinate me so much is that none of the witnesses could have been asleep. They were all walking in roughly the same area of Cannock Chase, and their reports are startlingly similar.
I will continue to interview people if more sightings come in over the next few weeks,
We are all aware of the strangeness that goes down at this Staffordshire forest, and I know most of you are just as eager as me to discover the truth. One theory could be that we are dealing with a single entity. Something that has the ability to transform into different creatures, or perhaps something that appears differently to different people? That might help to explain why so many werewolf, pig-man, panther, and black eyed children sightings have come to light in the recent times.
At the moment, it's still early days. Hopefully I'll have some kind of conclusion for you in the near future.
I've included some of the sighting reports below so you can all take a look.
I look forward to seeing you back here soon.

Location: Castle Ring
Report: While taking a midnight stroll around Castle Ring last Friday morning, I happened to notice a strange figure in the distance. It appeared to rise out of the trees and hover over the path around 100m in front of me. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard the stories of Spring-Heeled Jack, but if you have, this thing seemed to look pretty similar to all those old artists impressions. It was very dark, but I could see it clearly because of the lights coming from Rugeley. It was also a pretty clear night. If I were to compare it to anything, I would say it looked like a stereotypical Victorian gentleman. Long black overcoat with a Homburg hat. Except, I know this was no flying human. I know that because it had blood red eyes that shone in the night sky. It also had a mouth full of teeth that seemed to look like razors. Whatever it was, it stopped hovering and descended back into the trees. Needless to say, I did not investigate any further.
I was awoken yesterday morning just before 2am by an odd scratching noise in my bedroom. I instantly sat upright in bed in an attempt to discover whatever was causing the sound. To my astonishment, there was what seemed like a sphere-shaped shadow by the edge of my wardrobe. As I tried to get out of bed and investigate further, the shadow began to stretch towards the ceiling. It was at that point I found myself faced with the most disgusting and horrific creature imaginable. It was about 8 feet tall, and had a white face with razor sharp fangs. It almost looked like a vampire. I fell back into my bed and the creature started moving towards me. Its arms stretched out to almost twice their original length, and I felt claws scraping at my skin. I let out a scream in fear for my life, and the creature retreated back into the corner of my room. It then shrank back down into a ball and slowly faded away.
I don’t really know who else to turn to. The weirdest thing happened last night, and I just don’t know what to make of it. At half past two in the morning while I was sleeping, I heard a bang that woke me from my dream. As my eyes opened, I saw a man floating over me. He was so close that I would have headbutted him if I moved an inch. I could see into his eyes. They were a fierce red colour that shook me to my very core. Although he didn’t speak, I knew what he was thinking. It was as though he was talking to me telepathically. He definitely wanted to hurt me, but there was something stopping him. It was almost like he was someone gaining power from scaring me though. Maybe something bad will happen when he gets strong enough? For what it’s worth, I’m not a nutcase, and I work for a local business of which you will be familiar. It just seemed the anger in his eyes grew stronger as I was feeling more scared. The ordeal ended when the man (who was completely dressed in black with a hat to match) floated higher and higher above my until he hit my ceiling and disappeared.
