Girl’s hell living with poltergeist that tried to ‘strangle her a with curtain’
A family were met with a terrifying reality when they were haunted by a poltergeist in Enfield, London.
Furniture moving, objects flying and levitation were seen by witnesses in the haunted house based at 284 Green Street.
The ghost reportedly possessed an 11-year-old girl for almost a year in the home, who was one of four children.
Another child, Margaret, who was 13 at the time, was said to experience haunting activity as well, reports MyLondon.
Peggy Hodgson, her kids and other eyewitnesses heard unexplained knocking noises and voices during their 18-month time in the property.
It was reported that a former resident who died took possession of Janet – who was 11 at the time – and spoke through her.
She allegedly hovered several feet off the ground and would speak in possessed voices.
One of the voices Janet used she called Bill and she uttered the terrifying words to onlookers: "Just before I died, I went blind, and then I had a haemorrhage and I fell asleep and I died in the chair in the corner downstairs."
The resident is believed to be Bill Wilkins, who used to live at the house and died several years before the Janet was possessed.

Speaking to Radio 4 in 2018 Janet recalled the experience.
She said: "I was used and abused – there was levitation, there was the voices and then there was… the curtain that wrapped itself around my neck, which was quite life-threatening for me, and it brought it home to me – that this could kill you.”
The story is so terrifying it has been turned into a TV series, The Enfield Haunting, and films like The Conjuring 2.
Peggy Hodgson never moved out of the house until she died in 2003.

However, the house is allegedly no longer haunted, with the resident confirming to MyLondon that 'it used to be'.
A neighbour explained he understood why the house was haunted.
“I understand why it could be haunted,” explained 19-year-old Gem who lives next door to the haunted house.
“It does look creepy and on days where it’s foggy I understand why it could be haunted.”

“My sister pranked them once,” continued Gem, who has lived next door to the haunted house for two years. “She slammed the door and (the group of ghost tourists) thought it was a ghost and all ran away.”
The student also explained there is no supernatural feeling on the road usually.
“I completely forgot that I moved next to a haunted house,” he added. “I was only reminded when people came and took photos and I wondered what they were doing. My dad then told me.”
There has been a lot of speculation around the ghost and whether it existed.
One claim put to Janet by Radio 4 was that she may have had Tourette’s Syndrome.
Tourette's often forces people to make a barking noise and say things they cannot control.
However the victim of the hauntings rejected that claim. She said: "I don’t care what they think, I know what happened and I know it was real."
