You know when you think you have unfinished business with something and you feel the need to do something about it? 

This is how we feel about going back to The Village, an historic building over 200 years old with a varied and interesting history. We brought an EXCLUSIVE live Facebook Ghost Hunt a few week backs, attracting 10,000 viewers on the night and from a paranormal point of view it was a very active night.

HauntedLIVE are a team of 7 ghost hunters, we're not scientists, we're not experts, we're mates with an interest in the paranormal, we get scared and spooked just as much as everyone else (ahem - some more than others), we don't go on social media bigging ourselves up to the next best thing, what we do is that we actually have a laugh, have some fun and go to locations and hunt for ghosts.

ITV's thirst for more supernatural continues...

If you were in search of a new, disease-fighting antibiotic, where might you start? In a swamp? A remote island? Well, how about combing beards?

Jason Wall, HauntedLIVE
On the BBC show Trust Me I'm a Doctor they do experiments which sometimes throw up genuinely new science. In a previous series, for example, they discovered you can cut the calories in pasta by cooking, cooling and then reheating it.

That was a very pleasing result. But their most recent discovery, finding bacteria which appear to be producing a novel form of antibiotic, feels altogether more significant. What was particularly delightful was that they were found growing in someone's beard.

#HauntedLIVE - The Village, Mansfield 17-01-16

(but if you missed it don't worry)

The #HauntedLIVE team were amazed by Sunday night's HauntedLIVE Ghost Hunt. The Village Mansfield didn't let us down, proving once again that this location is a fantastic place to investigate.

So much happened, it was hard to keep track of everything, as soon as we walked in there was taps, footsteps, bangs, shadows, things being thrown, voices and so much more.

Didn't catch it? Here's the footage from the event. 
(spoiler alert: keep a look out for the pulsating torch AND especially keep your ears peeled around 45 minutes into the first video, it's all very intriguing)

As ever we'd appreciate your comments and thoughts.
