Those taking part will join the late-night hunt which takes place from 9pm to 2am. Mediums will be present throughout the night and vigils held. Ghost hunters will take a look at the building, before being shown the cell where Florence Maybrick was held.

Florence was a young American woman convicted of murdering her cotton-broker husband James Maybrick by arsenic poisoning in 1889. She was originally sentenced to death – later reduced to life imprisonment – although many believed she was innocent.

People joining the ghost hunt will be placed in smaller groups and kept with friends and family.

Tickets are £15 plus booking fee and can be purchased here. Ghost hunts at the Old Police Station are scheduled to take place on April 17, May 22, June 19, July 16, August 21, September 18, October 23, November 20,

The event is being organised by Deadline Events, a paranormal investigative team that has explored some of the UK’s most haunted and active locations.
