Sting claims he sees ghosts and has seen the figure of a child, witnessed flying objects and heard strange voices
Sting sees ghosts.
The Police frontman claims to have seen the apparition of a woman, witnessed flying objects and heard strange voices at a home he once lived in with wife Trudie Styler.
One night, the terrified 58-year-old singer - who sang 'Spirits in the Material World' in the 80s - awoke to see a ghostly mother holding a baby in the corner of the room.
He said: "I would never have said I believe in ghosts, until I saw one - I've seen a ghost with my own eyes.
"I was in bed one night, in a very old house I used to live in, and I woke up at three in the morning, bolt upright, looked into the corner of the room and thought I saw Trudie standing there with a child - our child - in her arms, staring at me.
"And I thought, 'Well, that's strange - why is she standing in a corner, staring at me?
"And I then reached next to me and there was Trudie, and I suddenly got this terrible chill. And she woke up and said, 'Gosh, who is that?' And she saw this woman and a child in the corner of the room."
That was not the only supernatural encounter Sting had in the house, and he admits he was plagued by otherworldly beings.
He added in an interview on UK station Radio 2: "A lot of things happened in that house, a lot of flying objects and voices and strange, strange things happened.
"When you live in old houses you get this energy there. Intellectually, no I don't believe in them, but I've experienced them on an emotional level."
