Ghost hunters too scared to go back to 'horrible' ex animal research lab in Gosport that made them feel sick
PROFESSIONAL ghost hunters were left terrified when they entered a former animal research lab in Gosport.
Tony Ferguson and his colleagues only lasted for two hours in the lockdown down building in Military Road.
They claim to have ‘heard voices’ and had stones thrown at them by an ‘unseen force’ – discovering burnt ouija boards and other elements of witchcraft along the way.

Mr Ferguson, and three other paranormal experts from Ghost2Ghost, Debbie McCall, Emily Cowell and Sandy, were all left shaken and unnerved by the experience – much of which they captured on video and shared on TikTok.
He told The News: ‘There were no expectations, but we were quite surprised at the activity we were getting.
‘We were hearing a deep male voice responding to us and not in a nice way, shouting expletives at me when I coughed.
‘I’m the only male there, so I’m not going to be coughing and shouting swear words at myself.’
The 37-year-old said the former military base was converted into an animal research lab, before being shut down in 1990.
He added that creatures were put in water tanks to test how they would deal with the pressure on their bodies.
Mr Ferguson said tests also happened to humans, to see if they could handle being in underwater vessels such as submarines.
The ghost hunters spent two hours in the locked down location in the late evening, and the women were supposedly pressured by voices.
‘The females we were with did not feel comfortable at all,’ Mr Ferguson added.
‘This male voice just seemed to keep on following us, and we felt we were always looking over our shoulder.
‘Stones were also thrown at us by an unseen force.’
Mr Ferguson thinks an ex-soldier resides there and was trying to get civilians off the premises.
He added that discovering the witchcraft items – left as a joke or by people doing a seance – made things creepier.
‘We just couldn’t be in there anymore, everyone got affected at some point where they felt nauseous,’ he said.
‘There is definitely something horrible going on there.
‘I would not want to go back there, unless I had to.’
