A team of paranormal investigators in Leicestershire believe they may have made contact with the ghost of King Richard III, after performing a séance at Donington le Heath Manor House near Coalville, Leicester. The 12 members of the ‘Haunted Heritage’ group spent the night at the 700-year-old manor house where they believe they captured the voice of the former monarch as they gathered around his bed. The Haunted Heritage group used a ‘ghost box’ to capture their findings, a device that allows spirits to speak to the natural world through white noise. Medium Gill Hibbert aged 56, revealed that the group asked the supernatural presence ‘What is your name?’ when a disembodied voice answered back ‘Richard.’ The team had recorded one of the best examples of paranormal contact they had ever experienced. Gill explained: ‘We heard the name, ‘Richard’ – it was so clear. We were blown away.’ ‘It was in the main room upstairs in the manor house – it was coming up to the witching hour.’ ‘We had been there since 8pm. At about 11.45pm, we started the call-out session. We were standing in the dark but there was a bit of light coming in through the window.’ ‘The night was quite uneventful up until then – we had a few knocks and bangs – but when that came through it was the icing on the cake.’ Gill was keen to add, that although it seemed as though the King was in the room with them, they are not jumping to conclusions about the voice they heard. ‘We are being careful about saying it’s Richard III because we can’t prove it. We’re trying to get a historian to look into other Richards who have lived there. But no one has found anything yet.’ Legend has it that the short-lived King spent his last night in a bedroom of the manor house before he was killed during the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. It is believed he was given a hasty burial, and his forgotten remains were only discovered in 2012 by a team of archaeologists who tracked his body down to a city centre car park in Leicester. The idea that the living could contact the spirits of the dead has been around for some time.
