...A little bit from The Night People


I just lay there listening to the slow dragging of what sounded like a finger nail somewhere beneath the fabric my ear was pressed against. My first thoughts were that it was demonic, don’t ask me why I thought this but I did. It was a chilling sound and it was happening in the afternoon, I wonder how many other people have experienced something as surreal in what should have been nothing more than an ordinary day. I now believe whatever was responsible for leaving the holes in my back was taunting me, I feel certain it was no coincidence that I was thinking about the bed spring turning in my back when I heard the finger nails beneath my ear.

After a while turned over in bed and lay looking up at the ceiling, it was a sunny day and the room was well lit with natural light. My thoughts moved between what I had just heard and the recollections of something telling me the bed springwas turning into my back like a cork screw. It added to the feelings of unease I had been carrying around in my head all week.

Then literally from out of nowhere a blast of ice cold air hit me in the face, before that moment the room had been still. The bedroom door was shut, so was the window. So where it came from I don’t know, but I didn’t like it. It felt dark and sinister, if it is possible for air to feel this way that is how it felt.

It was so unexpected and once again proves that these undetectable beings are around us more than we realise. I don’t know what the scariest part of all this is, knowing that they can take you whenever they want is terrifying, and the realisation that they know your thoughts is a violation without equal. Even more disturbing are my thoughts that these beings might actually live on the other side of death.

Panther at Starr Carr


I spent most of yesterday at Flixton Star Carr talking with farmers and locals who have seen the big black cat. The last report I have was from Wednesday the 14th of March. I’m not going to sit on the fence and say it might be real because I know it is. I’m not making excuses for what I saw with my own eyes in December 2017 at Bempton with Bob Brown, we both saw it and it was a Labrador sized black cat. So was the cat seen at Star Carr a few weeks ago the same animal we saw at Bempton. And is it the same animal seen around Ravenscar?

What was killing livestock throughout 2017 on farms around East and North Yorkshire?

I’m not talking about one or two animals found dead, and the kills were like nothing I have ever seen. So many elements about the killings don’t add up though, systematically removing the throats of its victims, leaving them to bleed out. Then coming back the next night and doing the same to one more and not eating the meat? The Patten was repeated throughout 2017 and into 2018.

I have been promised images of the cat.


New werwolf accounts for Truth Proof 3

A Snip from TP3 The Neverlands

The Foxwood wolf man

I could not write another truth proof without adding a few truly incredible accounts that have come my way about wolf -men type creatures. The fact they keep coming to my attention makes me believe there is more than a tiny grain of truth to them. As to what they are, your opinions are as valid is as mine. I don’t think they can all be overactive imagination and misidentification.

And what’s more amazing is that most of the accounts I have collected come from remote patches of woodland. Repeat areas where people unconnected to one another report seeing these creatures.

The village of Grindel sits on the outskirts of Bridlington, it is mostly farms and a few cottages. It has no shops or amenities and is quite isolated.

The following account was given to me by a man who used to live I the village over 20 years ago.

Back in the 1980s Bob was always out and about around the fields and woodlands surrounding Grindel. At the time he was actively setting snares and poaching, out hunting in places he shouldn’t have been. I have spoken to him many times about what he saw on the edge of Foxwood and it is clear from his description that it was no ordinary animal.

I have taped accounts of this story and the notes I made at the time, so what you are about to read is what I was told during face to face meetings in 2015.

Bob is blunt talking man who uses the local dialect when talking, so some of the words in this account may not read correctly. But I have added the right word in brackets for ease of reading.


“Right am gonna start by saying I don’t ever want my full name to be seen anywhere with what am gonna about to tell you. I know what I saw and I will take that to the grave, but we were on land we shouldn’t have been on. We was poaching.

It was late in the year, November I think, and about 1983. I remember there was snow on the grund [ground] and we was up around Foxy [Foxwood] checking mi snares. It was really odd, we hadn’t had anything for weeks and believe me I was good. Before this I used to go up there and could always get phesys [Pheasants] rabbits or hares, always. But there was nout, the woods had been cleared out or something had scared most of the game away.

Something was beating me to the snares, I could see where we had caught something. But something else had ragged what we caught out of the snare. It was really starting to piss me off.

Well a was up there early one morning , it was just getting light. Me and another lad and we was walking along the edge of a field towards Foxy, the wood was dead. Nothing made a sound no birds no game nothing. And our snares had either not been touched or whatever we caught had been taken. It was really strange, a no its sounds daft but it actually felt creepy.

We stopped at the edge of a field and had look round, I remember turning to talk to my mate and seeing movement at the other side of the field. Something caught my eye and I turned instantly.

Well let me tell you I have never seen anything like what I saw in my life. I didn’t know what I was looking at first. I thought it was a young Hoss [Horse] I thought what’s a Hoss doing over there

This thing jumped over the hedge and landed in the field, it was massive. And it cleared the hedge without any problem, but it was the way it landed that got me. It landed on all four feet just like a cat. And it never moved when it landed, and that hedge was high, if dog or a Hoss had jumped over something that high it would have had to run forwards when it landed. This thing just landed and stopped dead. More to follow

Christian Lynch Truth Proof The truth that leaves no Proof

5.0 out of 5 stars

A Classic Piece of Citizen Investigation5 March 2017

Format: Paperback

Verified Purchase

 Truth Proof is a classic piece of citizen investigation. Strange lights in the sky, people disappearing, big cats stalking the landscape, werewolves in the woods, fairy folklore, little humanoid creatures, this is high strangeness galore! The veil between worlds seems to be very thin in this area of East Yorkshire. 

I enjoyed the book immensely, the different phenomena occurring are fascinating to read about and the first hand accounts of witnesses are compelling. I like Paul's open minded and inquisitive approach and he certainly comes across as a man of absolute integrity. I also think his speculations in regards to ley lines are spot on. I found it interesting that in multiple witness encounters recollections of the event were slightly different for each person and that in Intelligent Light Form encounters there is a type of inter mind interaction taking place in which the light form is able to affect the witness on a mental and emotional level. Lots of interesting things to ponder on. Also, I really liked the illustrations dotted throughout the book and hope to see more in any future books.

 So what is going on here? Inter-dimensional visitors from the Otherworld? Advanced military projects? Extraterrestrials? Black magic? Spirits of the land? I keep an open mind to everything and all possibilities and think it is most likely a mixture of all of the above. I completely sympathize with Paul in regards to knowing that the vast majority of people do not take these topics seriously and usually offer nothing but ridicule and disdain, and that the scientific establishment, for the most part, help to maintain the status quo. I agree with Paul that observation and study of specific areas is key to trying to understand and unravel these mysteries and that ley lines play a key role (See Keith Mathew Hunters work on key military installations around the world being situated on leylines).

 For me Truth Proof sits right up there, as a bonafide classic, with the books of Dr Karla Turner and Daimonic Reality by Patrick Harpur. It is an incredible account of high strangeness. I eagerly await Paul's next book.

Refreshingly candid, detailed and well researched. Terrifyingly true.10 July 2017

Format: Paperback

Verified Purchase

 I have been eager to read Paul Sinclair's book as I have wondered about a possible connection between strange disappearances and unexplained phenomenon occurring in the same areas around the globe. I have also noticed the frustrating lack of media coverage on missing individuals after the initial searches had been called off. Likewise, I have been baffled by the apparent acceptance of vague coroner reports from the general public that a body found (or not) “may or may not” have committed suicide or “got into difficulty” before that person then is removed from the missing person list, and the online news reports vanish.

All too often researchers simply don’t dig deep enough, they don’t look at the bigger picture, and they focus one only one phenomenon and miss vital links that are not at all obvious at first glance.

Never having quite been contented with the investigation done into clusters of missing people by other well-known authors, I have been frustrated that nobody links cases to local folklore, ufos, and other strange sightings. It is as if doing so somehow discredits the seriousness of the investigator. Linking real life missing people to the possible paranormal phenomenon is a taboo subject and one that most would steer clear of for fear of being insensitive, but Paul Sinclair's book has finally managed to achieve this in an incredibly diplomatic way.

Years of research has gone into this book, and Paul has a way of writing that feels genuine and honest. Yorkshire folk call a “spade a spade,” at last someone that feels no need to embellish or skirt around the facts and this is precisely what this book realises. I do not know Paul personally, but his writing style felt as credible as if my brother or father or husband was stood there telling me these facts. I did not need to question the integrity of what I was reading as he backed it up with newspaper clippings, drawings, and frank eyewitness accounts. The author presents the evidence in a refreshingly candid format, leaving the reader to reach their conclusions and yet left in no doubt that what is going on in this region of East Yorkshire is not coincidental and terrifyingly, nor is it likely to be limited to this area. I look forward to reading much more of Pauls work and predict that he will be in demand now for many future TV, Radio and public speaking events. Well Done Paul Sinclair!

I enjoyed reading Paul's first book so was excited when I heard Truth- Proof 2 was to be published. Often, sequels fail to achieve the standard set first time around but this was clearly not the case here. I was gripped from start to finish and to be be quite honest, found some of the stories quite un-nerving and at times unsettling. This is really cutting edge stuff and once again, Paul's research skills as well attention to detail are second to none. Whilst he continues to write in a no- nonsense matter of fact style I think the quality of his writing, particularly when summing up and assessing such anomalous experiences within the consensus reality of our day to day world to be highly pertinent and insightful; Paul has certainly jumped up a few notches since book 1. The majority of anomalous stories are interesting but for some reason, these are disquieting and ever so slightly worrying: perhaps because they are written in such a no- nonsense style or perhaps because they are set very close to where I live? Whatever the reason,

congratulations Mr Sinclair for daring to touch that nerve!

The story of Tornado ZA610 has not changed over the past thirty years and this would have remained so, if not for my research into strange events and happenings around East and North Yorkshire. It was in the archives of Bridlington library that I made a discovery in a Bridlington Free Press newspaper article, from Thursday December 19th 1985. This discovery led to a mystery.

Entitled 'Body Mystery' the short article states that on Thursday December 19th 1985, the body of the Tornado's navigator had been found by the Bridlington trawler 'Betty', sixteen miles south east of Flamborough Head. The article explains that, thirty-six miles to the east of the first, a second body was found in an ejector seat. This is confirmed by a report from The Scarborough Evening News published a day earlier, which also states that two bodies were found in ejector seats on the same day. The story becomes even more intriguing when we see that both newspapers state that the second body was not thought to be that of Tornado ZA610's pilot.

If a person had made up this story to create a conspiracy, I very much doubt people would believe such an unusual set of circumstances. Yet this is what was reported in late December 1985. Although the newspaper reports may be accurate, I just wonder how the story would be viewed if I had reported it here, without having the original newspapers to support my words.


Satanic RAF Bemptons subterranean world

Posted on February 6, 2018 at 12:55 PM Comments comments (0)



Perhaps when looking at RAF Bempton and the stories attached to it, we should also consider the surrounding villages. Stories of witchcraft and the occult have been documented throughout the whole area for hundreds of years. The inhabitants of the villages were and still are very distrusting of outsiders. In the not so distant past Flamborough and Bempton were once considered dangerous places to visit for outsiders. Sorting people out 'the Bempton way' is still talked about today. I have one credible report from a farmer who lives in the coastal village of Hunmanby. He talks of people being actively involved in witchcraft around Irton Moor on the outskirts of Scarborough, a location associated with military installations and only fifteen miles away from Bempton and Flamborough.


When looking for evidence to back up stories connecting RAF Bempton to the occult, I looked at the area as a whole to see if there was a history of dark practices. I then began to look into the whether these locations were actually accessible - would people of different age groups be capable of accessing the underground base during the night ? I have visited the area many times over the years, so I know the roads and paths that lead onto the cliff-tops very well. With that in mind I decided that the only way to find out was to do the journey myself at night. I first assumed that the people involved would be of various ages, so ease of access would have been a deciding factor. If a person were to leave their car at Flamborough's North Landing, then walk along the cliffs to the base, it would be a four mile walk. Assuming these alleged activities took place in the night, walking on uneven ground during darkness would not be recommended and seems highly unlikely that anyone would do that. Another reason it would have been unlikely was that Flamborough's lifeboat station at that time was still situated at North Landing. Although it was not staffed at night, if there was an emergency lifeboat call-out and there were cars in the cliff-top car park, I am sure concerns would have been raised and the police would have been informed.


Another route to the RAF base can be found by parking close to the pond at Buckton village and walking up Hoddy Cows Lane to the cliff-top. Bearing right to walk along the coastal path, the base is about two miles away. The walk would be quite difficult during the night, but it would have been possible. I tried this route in darkness myself and have to say I never want to repeat the experience. So unless the people taking part lived close by, I would rule this out. If any of these routes were used it is safe to say that no elderly people could have made the journey. This leaves just two possible locations to gain entry to the base, but even these would be difficult during the night.


The RSPB nature reserve is less than five hundred metres away from the base. It is as remote a location as all of the others, this was even more so during the 1970s and 80s. Nothing much has changed on the land in all those years. Concrete posts are evidence that an eight foot fence once surrounded the perimeter and in front of that is a low, three-strand barbed wire fence, which is still used as a deterrent. The fence has been repaired and patched many times during its life. In 2015 I spoke with the farmer and land owner, who told me he was tired of repairing the fence, because of the number of people climbing over it to gain access to the base. If there is any truth in the stories of a satanic cult connected to RAF Bempton, I think this would be the only way to reach it undetected. The route is not ideal, but it is possible to walk there in less than ten minutes. The only other way would be to take the small single track road which runs directly to the base entrance. This would have been the main entrance during its operational years. I think anyone wishing to visit the base for such secretive reasons would be unlikely to take this path, as it means passing the only occupied property on the road - and that belongs to the farmer who owns the land where the base is situated.

It is worth pointing out that from the farmhouse it is not possible to see the base, because there is an ancient earthwork known as Standard Hill situated between the two, so any unusual activity would have gone unnoticed.


It is self-evident that the base's underground bunker was used for occult practices sometime in during 1970s and 80s, so unless some of the people involved lived very close, the land around the nature reserve had to be used to gain access. Below ground the bunker walls are painted with images of pentagrams, devils and animals engaged in explicit sexual acts, which give a feeling of foreboding. This does not prove that the bunker was ever used for ritual magic. It may only show that a person or persons with unnatural thoughts did spend time inside the bunker. It does however, place the location on the edge of a mystery. What kind of people would take the time to create such artwork ? I have spoken to local men and women living in Flamborough and Bempton, who would have been teenagers during the 1990s. Some of them told me there was truth in what I was looking into. Yet the artwork is too explicit and too well executed to be the work of adolescent teenagers running around in the darkness with torches. As an artist myself, I am sure that it could not have been achieved without large areas of the bunker being lit up.


One man, now aged fifty, told me that his father was actually employed by the MOD to remove scrap items from the bunker during the late 1970s. He said that he spent many hours working with his father inside the bunker and is certain that people had been actively using it at night when they were not present. He told me that in the 1980s, military police once forcibly removed a satanic cult from below ground in bunker. I was told that I wouldn't find any local newspaper report on the story because the MOD did not want it to be known. He was right, because when I searched the local newspaper archives I found no account of the incident - if it was true at all.


I spoke at length with another Flamborough man named Paul. He has lived in Flamborough all his life and is now in his forties. He told me about a time he went to the bunker as a teenager to explore it with friends. He said they went below ground with torches to look at the artwork on the walls and to just experience the thrill of being there. It was something that many of Flamborough's youth did. I first visited the bunker myself in 1998 and have to say that I have never felt an atmosphere quite like it.


Paul told me that on one particular day they found something more shocking than they ever expected. He said they were quite deep into the bunker when they came across a large wooden crucifix leaning against a wall. Hanging from the centre of the cross was a spaniel dog, with a steel spike nailed through its head. He told me that the cross was not just a couple of old planks nailed together, it was well made and looked heavy, as though it had been taken there for a reason. He said the dog had clearly been there for some time as it had started to decompose. Stories like this suggest something unnatural was taking place at the location - and locations are the key. I then began to think the unthinkable. I have long believed that the strange lightforms seen by many, are able to interact with human emotions. The visual connection and interaction experienced by witnesses on the Wolds certainly suggests this. What if there is energy within an area or place, which combines with the emotional state of the witness, which then allows these things to manifest ?

Could location and human emotion be the key ? If this theory is correct, could concentrated human emotion unlock some of these local mysteries, perhaps even creating 'flashpoints' where it may be possible to study the phenomena ?
