Take a look at our picture of the strange fuzzy shape close up.

The BBC Hereford and Worcester building has allegedly been home to a ghost for a long time now.

Apparently when the building was a Tannery between 1949 and 1960 there was a traveller who was working here.

He was depressed at the time and was told off by his boss.

He then went upstairs and hung himself.

He is said to still haunt the building.

BBC Hereford and Worcester first met Paul Darby, the well known Feng Shui expert, at the Ideal Home exhibition in London this year.

We invited him down to our Worcester studios to give our building a once-over but he actually found more than he bargained for.

Paul is a specialist - an expert - a worker with the natural chi energies, and as a Dao-Buddhist, he is living the philosophy of ancient Chinese culture daily.

He oozes charisma, a gentle spirituality, total awareness and his consultations go far beyond the mere 'shallow' ideas of feng shui you read in many of the Western books on the subject.

When he first entered the "haunted" studio he felt a very powerful negative energy, particularly in one corner.

Shortly afterwards a BBC Midlands Today cameraman took a digital photograph of presenter, Lindsay Doyle, and was astonished to find a strange fuzzy shape in the same corner of the room identified by Paul.

After dashing off to a specialist shop to stiock up on some "tools for the trade", Paul returned to begin the exorcism of the negative energy.

During the exorcism, which happened live on the Dave Bradley Programme, many strange noises can be heard which left Dave feeling slightly shaken. Listen to the exorcism.

According to Paul Darby, the exorcism was a success and the studio now feels absolutely fine.
