A couple have shared terrifying footage of a doll moving on its own in the middle of the night - and people are seriously freaked out.
Lee and Linzi Steer, from Rotherham, are collectors of spooky dolls, but say this particular doll is a 'mystery' after it was sent to them without a note.
You can watch the chilling clip below:
The couple were gobsmacked when they watched the CCTV footage and found that the Victorian doll had moved all by itself.
When the pair shared the footage on social media, other paranormal fans claimed it looks like a 'child is hugging it'.
"This particular doll didn't come to us as haunted. People sent it but didn't particularly tell us what [had happened with her]," says Linzi.
"Usually they'll leave us notes but with this doll, it was nothing. It was a mystery. We went in on Friday and we both noticed that doll propped forward. I said 'let's just check CCTV'.
"No one ever goes in - it's just me, Lee and Lee's mum that have keys. We had to go right back to Tuesday [on the cameras] then Lee went 'oh my god'.
"The doll moves forward in three stages then its head moves. It turns its head - it's like the joints are physically moving like a human.
"It was propped like that. If it was a natural fall it'd have gone on the floor, but it didn't. The way she was positioned defies gravity.
"That doll is actually heavy and it was leant at an angle. This footage is the first time we've caught something moving on camera at the museum - it baffles me. I'm actually sceptical but I can't explain it."
After posting the clip on social media, Lee and Linzi, who run Project Reveal - say the majority thought it looked like a ghost child was playing with the doll.
"There were a lot of people saying the footage looks real. The main thing people talk about is the actual joints moving," Linzi continues.
"We put it online and 99 percent of them said it looked like a spirit child is wanting to hug the doll. A lot of people who come to our museum do pick up on children there. It's very weird.
"If there is something attached to the doll, we want to work with it. We've got 11 rooms of different things. [The property] used to be three miners' houses but now it's our museum, a café and a little shop.
"We know it's been a lot of things in its time but recorded details is that there were two children badly neglected in there.
"There is documentation of another child that was burnt and scolded to death."
The couple open their museum for private parties and paranormal investigators, with their website claiming they have 'five of the top 10 most haunted items to ever exist'.
"We own a haunted objects museum and every weekend there's someone in investigating there," says Linzi.
"This museum has haunted items from all over the world that people send us and the house itself is very haunted.
"We go down there after a team's been in to make sure the house is okay. We've got a lot of dolls and people send them to us. They might think there's something strange about them, some think they're haunted. We must have more than 200 dolls.
"These particular ones on the shelf are very old. We've got one that's dated from the 1800s.
"We've even got an old morgue table downstairs."
Lee said: "I've been doing this for over 20 years and I've never seen anything like that. It definitely shocked me."
We are officially spooked!
