Thanks to Doubtful News for pointing out that this poltergeist story is nothing more than a hoax.
At the time of posting I couldn’t find much information in regards to Donna Ayres’ claims of poltergeist activity. Watching her videos with more attention, you can easily spot the hoaxer’s mistakes:
Pay close attention to the upper left corner near the 1:55 mark. You clearly see the shadow of a hand pulling the fishing line. Nice try hoaxers, nice try.
When Donna Ayres’ estranged brother passed away in 2009 she began to experience a stream of unnerving occurrences inside her home. At first, Donna started hearing loud banging sounds at night, which escalated to someone or something scratching the walls inside her home. Soon the unexplained annoyances escalated into frightening disturbances of which Donna began to record.
Not knowing what to do, Donna and her partner, Jason Heys, started uploading the disturbances they captured to YouTube. In effort to attract attention and help with their poltergeist activity.
The first video Donna uploaded was supposed to be just an introduction of her plight but ended up being the first piece of evidence she captured:
“I believe this is happening because death has always followed me, but I have strong suspicions the spirit could be my brother, who died when I was younger.”
Donna had been documenting her experiences for the last three months in a desperate attempt to reach out to others who might be able to help her situation. The videos document the movement of different household items and furnishing – from spoons and cups moving from one place to another to the violent swinging of a chandelier.
Watching the videos on her YouTube channel, one can get a sense of how terrifying her everyday life seems but according to Donna, those are nothing compared to what actually happens when the camera isn’t rolling.
“Probably the worst time was when I was pinned to the bed, I’ll never forget it – it was very traumatic,” Donna said while recalling an incident she experienced that was particularly harrowing.
Donna’s brother Paul passed away in 2009 and a few months after that she started to experience paranormal activities starting with loud bangs and scratches appearing on walls at night. Even after changing residences the paranormal activities continued in every house she lived in and ever since she started recording with her camera phone and posting the videos online, the hauntings became even more common and rampant leading Donna to believe that she has angered the spirit.
When asked why Donna believes her brother is responsible for these eerie activities, “Given the rocky relationship with my brother, I genuinely believe this ghost is haunting me, not just the house which I live in, which is the most terrifying thing,” she said.
The videos have been garnering attention online with both skeptics and believers weighing in on each of the clips. Some have argued that the videos are obvious fakes achieved by moving items with nylon lines but the respected organization of Sefton Paranormal has stated that the footages are all genuine and Donna’s experiences can be classified as Poltergeist activities.
Donna’s answer to naysayers saying her videos are fakes, “It’s hard to get the footage as sometimes the paranormal activity is too quick to film, but I think I’ve done well to catch what I have with a basic camera phone.” –Source: TechTimes

What’s interesting about Donna’s claims is the commonality between her circumstances and those of other famous poltergeist cases. The Entity case, The San Pedro Haunting case are both prime examples of a young mother undergoing severe mental and emotional duress. Like Doris Bither in The Entity case, Donna Ayres began to experience the disturbances shortly after the death of someone in her family.
Psychokinesis? Hoax? What’s happening in Blackpool?
