15/09/03 (week commencing) Ghost on video, COOP, Penzance.
Thanks to Paul Siddens (member) for this report;
P.R.O. received a copy of a somewhat dubious recording of a supposed
ghost at the COOP supermarket, Penzance. We immediately questioned
the authenticity of this recording (a second is missing and there
are some major misgivings about its authenticity).
Later that week the tape appeared in the Cornishman and Daily
Star newspapers and on Channel 5, GMTV, SKY, and Carlton's Westcountry.
We were absolutely amazed to see it go this far and contacted
all of the above with our considered opinions.
All of these were completely uninterested in any possible factual
comments; we can only assume that sensationalism comes above realism.
Ian Addicoat was approached by Richard Felix (of Most Haunted
and who appeared on the Channel 5 programme, also now an honorary

19/09/03 Ian was approached by the Western Morning News for his
opinion of the video and they subsequently printed an article,
including his professional comments (at last a paper willing to
look at it seriously).

member of P.R.O. We wish to thanks Geoff for his past help with
the website and other contributions and wish him every success

with the six founding members and we will not be looking to replace
Geoff at this stage.
Thank you for those members who expressed a wish to join the committee.
