Ghost of former landlord haunts Birmingham pub

275x250.jpg Staff at a pub in Birmingham say they are being haunted by the ghost of a former landlord who knocks over glasses and throws beer mats at customers.

Henry Skinner -- who was murdered 116 years ago -- is claimed to haunt the Birmingham city-centre boozer The Trocadero.

Skinner served in the military before running the pub and was well-known in the city and ran a popular boxing academy.

But nowadays he's said to spend his time knocking over glasses, throwing beer mats, moving things around the pub at night and making the money in fruit machines rattle.
The former landlord suffered an early demise after crossing brothers Herbert and Arthur Allen in an argument about the wages he owed Arthur. In a fit of rage his brother, grabbed a gun and shot the landlord.
