I suppose I class myself as a typical bloke, say that I will do anything...but you put me in an active room where unexplained things are happening, you will see I am not quite the typical bloke! I scream, I run like a girl, but the more we do, I find myself wanting more and more, wanting to know the unknown. I am a true believer.
We have travelled the length and bredth of the country to different locations, and I have to say that I do enjoy Old Castles and Jails although I do enjoy investigating theatres also due to how much emotions are held within the walls of these amazing buildings.
The Park Hotel in Morecambe holds a special place in my heart as this was the first place that I got to investigate having the whole building to just myself and Clare for a whole weekend.
I love to catch a good class A EVP, but my best evidence to date is when we had a stone thrown at myself and Clare when we were in a jail cell alone at Jedburgh Jail with the door shut. At Bensham Grove we had amazing dragging noises coming from the attic with footsteps, this area was out of bounds at the time! Another time of clear unexplained footsteps have been at The Old Nick Theatre and Kielder Castle.Setting up LVI  for me was very scary, but meeting all our LVI friends and having an amazing team has been worth it, sharing my passion with you all.

I have always been interested in the Paranormal and over time it has become an obsession. Going to locations and experiencing feelings, emotions, sounds, right down to sightings scared me to death (no pun intended) to the point I would sit in a room that was that dark, you couldn't even see your own hand in front of your face...sitting there with my eyes squeezed tightly shut. I used to fear that the men in white coats would be coming for me, but with alot of work over time, and with the help from Chris, I became  used to the fact I was sensitive to the surroundings and even to this day, I work on developing my ability to tune into the stories of the buildings and spirits. I do not class myself as a medium of any kind, just sensitive.Although I believe, not everything is Paranormal. In fact I think that 96% of activity is able to be debunked. When we investigate these amazing locations, its a very small percent that we will come across that we are just simply unable to debunk. 
Simple things like a door opening on it's own...look at the flooring, is it wood? Have you disturbed the floorboard that has opened the door? Is there a draft coming from somewhere? For me it is those WOW moments that you have looked into every possible way and can not come up with a reasonable explanation. 
My best place that I have investigated is our EXCLUSIVE location at Elmwood Community Centre. Every visit here, we have different guests, yet the spirits still give us the same story that we can see a picture unfolding. We have so much more to uncover and learn from this location with the same spirits coming forward each time.
I have had many interesting experiences of the years and love sharing the new experiences with our amazing team and fantastic guests.
Setting up LVI was worth the hard work, sharing the world of Paranormal with fellow investigators.

Hi, I'm Cam. I have been actively investigating the paranormal for many years. I had my first experience when I was a very young child and since then I often 'see dead people'. In all seriousness, I love being a part of LVI, such a great team to work with. I am married to Craig and have 2 girls, Eva and Niamh. I am also (ok alot) interested in serial killers. I am not a weirdo honest!
My favourite location would be........ohhhhh this is a tough one, there is sooooo many. Maybe Newsham Park Asylum in Liverpool, this place is just amazing.  There is also the ancient ram inn, such a quirky little place.
My most memorable would be the Old Nick in Gainsborough, I was physically attacked but I would still go back!

Hi , my name is Tim.
I have been interested in all things paranormal for a couple of years now.At a very young age, I picked up various things but never actually followed things up and then about 2 years,I was taken to a Northumberland castle for a ghost tour where I witnessed many unexplainable things and became hooked in the dark side of the paranormal.
After many more investigations at numerous locations around the uk, many of which were with LVI, I decided to volunteer my services to become a member of the LVI Team .
I’ve experienced many things over the years whilst investigating but the one which sticks out most , is having an axe thrown and landing between myself and another person in a haunted torture chamber .
Although there are many specific items of equipment to search for the paranormal, all of which are amazing, I believe the best technology you can use is your very own senses.
I am very excited at being part of the LVI team and look forward to meeting many of you and investigating the many exclusive locations with you .

Hello everyone, I’m Kathryn!! I’m from Durham but now live in Newcastle with my fiancé and my dog.
My first experience of the paranormal was when i was 14, after a family member passed away in the parents house and then came back to stay. I would see a shadow figure around the house, aswell as noises. It wasn’t until my Dad witnessed it with me one night that i knew i wasn’t going crazy. This was the starting point for me and combined with my love of history i was hooked. I love going around the UK and the world visiting historical places.
The most memorable investigation i have ever done was at Souter Lighthouse in Sunderland,which is where is saw my first full apperition. It was of a lady in a Victorian dress sitting in the corner of the Cafe,
It was an unforgettable moment.
I would absolutely love to investigate the Bamburgh Castle!
It has such an amazing building and has an incredible history.

Hi my name is Ged i am married with 3 children and have been investigating for approx 15yrs . I have personally had a few experiences i couldn’t debunk i am a believer in the paranormal but sceptical enough to want to know why its happened !!
I have had poltergeist experience, stones thrown at me, and had voices whispered in my ear. I love being with LVI and having the freedom ( co vid allowing ) to do my own thing !! I look forward to meeting like minded people especially if your into the unknown and serial killers !! I used to work in Forensic learning disability services at a local psychiatric hospital now work in Co vid services so am used to being scared on a daily basis . Please feel free to introduce yourself if we meet on an event “” good hunting “ Ged

Hello, I’m Richard. I would class my self as a open minded sceptic when it comes to the paranormal. Even though I’m not a true believer in the spiritual world, it still fascinates me. From the urban legends to the cultural differences regarding spirits. Like I said I’m a sceptic and try to the best of my comprehension to look at the existence of spirits in scientific fact, which is repeatable and verifiable data. It’s true that the scientific community do not recognise the existence of spirits, but what I find interesting is that so-called ghost stories have been present in most civilisations since long before the discovery of gravity and still today the scientific community don’t have a repeatable and verifiable reason as to why so many people through out pretty much the whole of human existence believe in life after death. You would think they’d have a large enough data pool to pull from by now. The closest thing I myself I’ve had to a paranormal experience is at The Majestic Theatre in Darlington with the LVI team, we were using the K2 meter which detects low frequency electro magnetic fields. Cam one of LVI’s team leaders was asking questions in a small room and seemingly getting comprehensive responses from the K2. From the questions she asked she deduced she was communicating with the spirit that she’d first seen when she was four years old. For me the answers she got and the story of her encounter at such a young age somewhat debunks the popular theory that people believe in spirits to help them cope with life knowing that they will eventually die, what four year old is thinking about death that much? So I look at paranormal investigation as a child telling their parents they can’t find their PE kit, you don’t find things by not looking for them. I am very excited to be a part of the LVI team and always eagerly awaiting my next adventure with the team and our guests.


Paul: Team Member   Sensitive/ Medium

Hi I'm Paul from Leeds, West Yorkshire. My paranormal life began when I was a young child, always seeing "strange people" and wondering why no one were talking to them. In my early teens I blocked out everything and refused to acknowledge despite being harassed by spirits. Things went quiet for a long time till my mid twenties, being present at a friend's passing and seeing him leave his body. By my late 30's I no longer blocked it and welcomed the interaction. Now that I am on the wrong side of 40 I find it much easier to connect with spirit, which makes ghost hunting much more fun!
