Ghostly Goings On In ‘Monster Mansions’ Prison

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007 at 12:24 by Eliza E. Lanyard

Not for Mirror journalists the ongoing war in Iraq, or the government’s plans for a big super duper database which will monitor every citizens blood pressure along with what websites they visit. No, instead yesterday’s front page concerned an apparent haunting at Wakefield Category A Prison. Known within the prison service as Monster Mansions because it houses people convicted of the most horrific crimes, its now front page news because of ghostly goings on in Cell D336.
 
Infamous for being the cell of Britains most prolific serial killer, Harold Shipman who hung himself there on January 13th 2004, it is now occupied by convicted murderer and paedophile Roy Whiting. Apparently since Roy was moved into the cell he has been plagued by strange noises in the night and other happenings including finding a noose.

I have no sympathy whatsoever for him and I hope he is frightened shitless, though the likelihood of it being Shipman banging about from beyond the grave is slim to none given that a) ghosts don’t exist and b) its the other inmates making spooky noises and nooses to upset him.
 
What surprises me given the enormous events that are happening around us is the fact that for the Mirror this is front page news. WTF? What kind of journalism is that? Lazy, crap journalism if you ask me and insensitive to say the least, the way it almost gleefully lists the crimes Whiting was convicted of, as well as a quick run down on some of the other horrendous inmates in Wakefield Prison.
 
A spokesman for The Scooby Gang have said that they will not investigate the alleged paranormal events, no matter how many scooby snax they are offered but they will highlight shoddy nasty pointless journalism for nothing.
