Mike Woodcock ain't afraid of no ghost.
The 22-year-old Hamilton man, who prefers to be known as a paranormal investigator, is setting up business in Hamilton checking out unexplained things that go bump in the night.

It's a new vocation for the some-time actor who recently shifted from Waiuku.

The move comes from an obsession with the supernatural and horror movies, past experience with his own spooks, and a recently acquired ghost-busting kit.

"When I was living in Cambridge about three years ago I witnessed some keys levitating off the table," said Mr Woodcock, who observed the phenomenon with interest rather than fear.

The Mirbeck Ave house also often smelled of cigar smoke, although no one smoked, and a mystery figure in an army cloak was a regular apparition.
