PARANORMAL investigators have been digging around in a city centre museum looking for things that go bump in the night.

A crack team of investigators from the Gloucestershire Paranormal Society visited the museum overnight on Thursday and had exclusive access to every nook and cranny.

Museum curator Sarah Orton said: "They had access to all parts of the museum, including the cellar, all the parts the public don't get to see.

"I don't know if they found anything but they seemed very pleased afterwards.

"We hired the museum out to them and they had a good look around."

She added: "It is a Tudor building that creaks quite a lot and it can be a bit spooky if you're there on your own.

"But I haven't known any staff members to have seen any ghosts!"

There have been many reports of paranormal activity at Gloucester Folk Museum in the past.

    I'd love to join the paranormal team! I love anything to do with ghosts, I've had a few experiences myself, but I think it'd be amazing to actually go on the hunt!
