A puppet that reportedly 'choked' its former owner has been caught on camera moving inside a sealed glass container.
Paranormal Investigator Jayne Harris filmed the puppet every night for three months using a timed night vision camera.
She began watching the puppet after its previous owner claimed it tried to choke him to death.
The chilling footage shows the puppet's cross slowly moving upright and then crash into a glass pane of the sealed box.
Since receiving the puppet it has been kept inside a container blessed by holy water and for extra safety and investigation accuracy.
But they all built up to one evening where he believes the spirit attached to the puppet was choking him.
He said: "I cleared out all of my dad's belongings apart from the puppet, which I left on the drawer by my bed for some reason and that night it felt like I was being choked.
"Then without warning my throat suddenly went really tight, I've never had anyone's hands around my throat before so it was really scary.
"While I was choking I tried to wake my wife but it took her ages to come round.
"When she did I remember looking straight at the puppet sitting on the drawers near our bed and realising it was him."
John says the haunting experience began two weeks after inheriting the puppet, which he reluctantly kept because it was one of his father's favourite possessions.
