A ghost that has haunted an old pub for several years in Bolton, England has been kidnapped… and if that’s not enough, the owners are accusing a Chinese artist – Lu Pingyuan – for stealing it.
The pub owners are demanding the return of the ghost, after Lu published on his website that he captured it in “a symbolic act in reaction to the UK’s colonialist past”.
Lu reported to the local news that the ghost was snatched by its own free will. He further stated that he has no problem with returning the ghost, but only if it (the ghost) wants to.
The famous pub even has video evidence of the ghost in action.
