A mum who claims she has been attacked by a ‘ghost claw’ has revealed ghost footage of what she believes are evil spirits mercilessly taking over her home.
In the creepy video, a circular white light can be seen whirling round the room, starting at the bottom of the camera and rising to the ceiling.
Tracy Bruce’s one-year-old son, who the 21-year-old says is being targeted by the phantoms, can be seen in the corner of the ghost footage sitting in his baby chair.
Tracy says that despite her home being exorcised three times, it is still inhabited by ghosts which can take the forms of a child, man or animal.
The 21-year-old has now had to move into her parents home because she is too scared to stay there and says the local council will not rehouse her .
Tracy says the evil spirits have also moved items around her one-bed flat in York and she has found Calpol sprayed over her cooker and had her coffee jars rearranged.
The paranormal activity has also seen toy cars make noises when they are switched off and plugs push themselves out of walls.
“I’m sick of people telling me the pictures I’ve taken are reflections, light or dust,” Tracy said. “I’m petrified to go back there with my son – I feel uncomfortable in there and the atmosphere changes at night.
“My son would be screaming from morning to night and as soon as he came out the flat he was a completely different child.”
Describing the attacks, mum-of-one Tracy said: “Four days ago I went back to the flat and ended up being scratched.
“I then felt a pain on my back and there was a big 5cm scratch. It looked like a claw mark and it disappeared the next day.”
Tracy said she thinks the house is haunted by more than one evil spirit.
“The closest thing I can resemble it to is a dog,” she explained. “The ghost doesn’t look like any dog I’ve seen. I’m not sure what is it.
“Some people suggested it was a moth – but it isn’t at all. I filmed this in the living room, that was not there when I watched it.”
Speaking about the affect it has had on her one-year-old son, Tracy added: “He continuously cries and doesn’t act like that anywhere else.
“People have said don’t take him back because he could be seeing something that I’m not. This could lead to problems in later life.”
Tracy said the 50-year-old property used to be occupied by an elderly man who committed suicide.
She believes the man, who lived in the property for 25 years before her, was possibly driven to committing suicide because of the same paranormal activity she experienced.
The man did not die in the house, but took an overdose and later died in hospital.
She said: “After a few run ins with the ghosts I decided to read up about the property online – and I wished I hadn’t.
Tracy also says following bouts of spiritual rituals, blessings and exorcisms performed at her property – the ghouls are still lurking at her home.
She has been told that the address could be built on a burial ground and “strange smells” continue to fume from the back bedroom since September 2016 when she moved in.
The flat has been blessed three times, including by priest Canon Alan Sheridan and the property was even visited by psychic medium Lillyanne.
Tracy claims to have never believed in ghosts before moving into the home – but she can list a number of unexplained supernatural events which have occurred.
She claims she woke up one morning to find the contents of a Calpol bottle poured across her cooker despite leaving the lid screwed on.
Tracy says her son becomes inconsolable while in the house and believes the ghosts are tormenting him – because he acts like “a different child” outside the premises.
She added: “I’ve felt like something is making me angry and it changes how I think and feel.
“I’ve never believed in ghosts before but I do now and nobody can say to me ‘they don’t exist’.”
James Bailey, landlord services manager at City of York Council, said: “In line with our usual assessment processes, we have considered the evidence provided, visited the property and interviewed the tenant.
“We have found that this case does not meet the criteria to move the tenant, who we have advised on their rehousing options.”
Tacy has hit back at criticism from people claiming that all she wanted was a new flat.
Asked what she thought of people saying she was making up the tale because she wanted a new flat, Tacy said: “It’s nothing to do with the flat itself, I love it and is in an ideal location and just a five minute walk from the city centre and is picturesque.
“I would take living in a cardboard box over that [the flat]. It has a brand new bathroom and comments to getting a two-bed is nothing to do with that.
“I just want a like for like swap and that is what I have asked for.”
She added: “All I want is somewhere safe to raise my child.”
