London, January 30 (ANI): A Brit hospital has decided to use the services of an exorcist after its terrified staff reported sightings of a ghost.
Workers at Derby's new Royal Hospital claimed they had seen a figure clad in black and wearing a cloak was lurking around the wards and corridors.
And now, hospitals chiefs have decided to go ahead with the exorcism to ward off the 'spirit' at the 334-million-pound NHS site, formerly the site of the Derby City General Hospital, according to sources.
"There have been dozens of sightings over recent weeks and people are scared witless," the Sun quoted a source at the hospital as saying.
"Several have seen a male figure cloaked from head to toe in black darting between rooms and through walls - especially in departments near the morgue.
"It's affected morale so much that bosses decided they had to act," the source added.
A spokeswoman for Derby Hospitals NHS Trust said: "We take information from staff seriously and are working with the hospital chaplaincy to put people's minds at ease." (ANI)
