The owners of a historic pub in England have written to a Chinese artist who allegedly stole their ghost.


The bizarre dispute centers around Ye Olde Man & Scythe, a drinking establishment in Bolton, England which is said to be haunted by the ghost of James Stanley, the seventh earl of Derby, who was believed to have died after being beheaded just outside the building in 1651.


Reports of paranormal occurrences at the property had been going on for years, but now things seem to have gone rather quiet and the pub's owners are pinning the blame on Lu Pingyuan - a Chinese artist who maintains that he has actually caught the ghost and taken it with him.
