A British family has called in ghost hunters after being driven out of their "horror house" by what they fear is a poltergeist.

The family claim a catalogue of bizarre events the read like a collection of scenes from every scary movie - but they insist they all happened and they have the video to prove it.

Lisa Manning say she and her children Ellie, 11, and Jaydon, six, and her partner Anthony have fled their several times, according to a report in Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.

They include pots and pans being thrown around the kitchen, window blinds moving up and down by themselves, lights being switched on and off and drawers being opened.

Last week they were even forced to climb out of a window after being trapped in their living room when the door locked by itself, the paper reported.

Miss Manning, 34, installed hidden cameras in a bid to capture the ghostly events.

The 52-second clip shows a wardrobe door opening before a pink swivel chair moves slowly backwards towards the wall, the paper said.

Miss Manning said she feels like she is "living in a scary movie".

"One medium came in and said our house is a portal, a kind of bus stop for spirits, which they use to pass into our world.

"I couldn't believe it when I played the tape back, it sent chills up my spine.

"We called our landlords and they sent in a priest who blessed the house but said himself that we shouldn't live here, we definitely shouldn't stay.

Lisa said she doubted her children when they complained about noises and seeing objects move.

But she became suspicious after her pet dog was mysteriously killed last October after apparently being shoved down the stairs.

The family is talking to their landlord about getting out of the house.
