Welcome to the official web site of the Paranormal Intelligence Gathering Service otherwise know as the P.I.G.S. We carry out investigations into the paranormal in both public and private dwellings. The founders of our group have over 30 years combined service in the police force, hence the title! Because of that, we try to ensure that any tales of haunting's are actually backed up by evidence. Not just content to sit around in the dark and "call up spooks", we have the full range of equipment to try and find actual evidence of paranormal activity.
P.I.G.S Set the Challenge
Richard Case the UK's independent ghost Challenger asked us here at the P.I.G.S if we could find a location for him to do one of his challenges in where he spends the night on his own with a camera, this normally then features on Richards Facebook page for his followers to view.

News Update General
Feb / March has again been a hectic time with plenty going on in the background, new strategies for research, live streaming, and team operations. The case studies have had a face lift as we progress with our vision of ease of use policy where we are trying to enhance the PIGS user experience that little bit more. Keep your eyes in the media you might just see us pop up a fair bit in the coming months .
News Update Events
Valentines Mansion, Brighton Cells, Hylands House case files have now all the data published in them from our recent visits. New dates and venues will be added for the latter part of 2014 soon including our Halloween event.
News Update Ghost Store
Apparitions Technology are looking to dispatch our order in the next 10 days so there should be much more avalible stock soon.
New lines of Full Spectrum camcorders will soon be listed under £99
We are re looking at some of the old style paranormal experiments and seeing if we can bring any of these up to data, we have spoken to Apparitions Technology about developing several new pieces of equipment which will take on board the old theory but incorporate ease of use (less mad sientist).
Currently we are working on the Hylands House and Brighton cells case files, We are also looking at ways to integrate the case files from the same location, for example Brighton cells has had three separate investigations and we are trying to put all this data in the same place.
Tim and Debbie will be at the Valentines Mansion body and soul day on the 16th of February, so if you fancy seeing some of the stuff from the Ghost Store pop along and have a great day while you visit.
The Valentines Mansion event on the following weekend 22nd is looking good and still has places available for what looks to be great night, and an absolutely unforgettable Valentines gift if you fancy treating your loved one. If not then come anyway and have a great night of Ghost investigation at this very historic location with its many misterous tales.
Stock due in from Apparition Technology for the Ghost Store is a bit late to arrive with a delayed dispatch dur to the various fires that creap across Australia at this time of year, with Apparition Technologies being seriously affected, We are grateful no one was harmed they had to evacuate their premissis for a substantial period of time while fire crews brought the area firess under control, this has not only affected them but also the parts chain which is also causeing delay. I'm assured by Apparition Technologies that they are looking to disspatch to us as fast as they possibly can.

Experienced or just interested this is for you. Your chance to become an investigator of ghosts for a night with the PIGS team at Field Place. click the image below for more details.
Paul and Tim revisit Operation Ouija.
The P.I.G.S sent two intelligence gathering officers to a private address to investigate claims of, things being moved, people being watched from various corners by a black shadow figure, people being watched by an unidentified face in the windows and various recordings of voices belonging to persons unknown. The owners are convinced that the phenomena is as a direct result of their collection of around nine Ouija boards. As of yet we have retrieved no data on this case apart from the witness statements taken from those who live in the location. We have given guidance and training on several pieces of equipment which we have provided and formed an investigation plan that will span possibly several months. We will keep you posted on how this case unfolds.

Hylands House case file and other news.
Well the Hylands House case file is taking shape behind the scenes with some points of intrigue. We thought instead of drip feeding the info out we would attempt to complete the case and launch the file all in one, so while it may look as though all is quiet i can assure you lots are going on.
Operation incubus, Tim attended the scene with Medium Debbie Deen in the capacity of observer and advisor. This case we hope is now closed however should anything further come to light we will of course update you.
We will be travelling to operation Curve early in the new year to see if we can capture anything in a re-playable evidence format after studying this case for a few months now we feel we are getting closer to its Modus Operandi and are in a good place to wisely target our evidence gathering efforts.
Operation Charlie will resume in January also with a further data scoop and a fresh effort to learn the history behind this quite fascinating case.
Last but but no means least our most complex case Operation Earwig will hopefully conclude, due to its sensitive nature we have kept the detail away from the internet however we will be happy to publish once all parties have given us consent.
Thank you to everyone who took part, helped and talked about this event it the end all went extremely well, it was great to se so may familiar faces from previous events, and of course meet many new ones including Tony from Team Green, John from NIPG, Becky from CPI, and many other great people from other teams. Over the next few days / weeks we will be examining the various pieces of data we have caught to see if anything of note has been captured in a repayable format. Keep and eye on the Hylands House case file and or follow us or join us on Facebook and Twitter .
last night we had a meeting about various things bits and stuff, we welcomed our new recruit to the group Jo, and we even managed to get Tory to agree to provide her info for her profile page woohoo its finally done.
We have launched a Page on Facebook which we can link to our twitter account and operate it differently to our Facebook group page. We will be publishing the run up to Hylands House event via this page with a daily photo and update
The Essex trip
Amy, Kevin and Tori made the trip to Chelmsford last Saturday, the mission was to hand out leaflets about our event with Chelmsford city council to raise awareness, although they didn't get as far as the Sugar Hut their mission was a fantastic success in terms of meeting people and local business. The PIGS would like to say a huge thank you to all the people they met for your warm welcome and we very much look forward to conducting our first investigation event in the county of Essex.
Currently we are hard at work on private cases Operation Curve, Operation Charlie, Operation Incubus, and two others that haven't as yet been assigned an operations name. Also we are in the preparation phase for the Hylands House event which will be on the 17th of November, its a fascinating place with something for the experienced and first time investigator.

Happy New Year
Hello and thank you for having a peep at our site, heres a quick update on whats going on behind the scenes at PIGS.co.uk. We are currently working on trying to improve this site, for those of you that remember the older PIGS site will know that this is a massive upgrade on that, however the site performance isnt what we expected or are willing to accept, so there is a lot of work going on to improve it under the hood so to speak.
There are several projects in the pipeline which will include never been investigated high profile locations, and also some old favourites. We are looking for a location for the end of January as we have a request from a documentary maker that would like to feature us and the chosen location for a televised project.
We are hoping to get everybody together again soon so we can bash out some ideas for 2012.
November has been a very busy month here at PIGS HQ, we have been listed in 'The Best of Eastbourne' business listings which is a web site that lists good well run local businesses and celebrates them on the web, (thank you Best of Eastbourne for your support :-)
Work has begun on the PIGS App which we hope to publish via the iTunes store at some point in 2012 this App we are determined will be free and will be a fun way to stay in touch .
We have written our Ghost voices article for issue 19 due out end of January and you may have noticed that our issue 18 article is also out now which has been given a front page listing and makes it into the 'featured article section of the magazine. Dear Santa is a list of things bits and stuff you may want for Christmas or may want to buy for a paranormal friend this Christmas time.
On top of all that we are reaching the completion of case file 'Field Place' with only the finishing touches left to do before we launch its court room where we will invite you all to look through the case file and vote as to if you think based on our evidence you feel Field Place is Haunted.
We have also been working on case files 'Elizabeth Castle' 'The Crown' and ' Mount Ourgile' along with trying to develop a new way of presenting the iOvlius data.
Tim and Amy are about to write the February 2012 article to Ghost Voices magazine and are trying hard to link it with Valentines day in some way while the P.I.G.S December article for Ghost Voices is about to be published the article is about several cool things you might want to buy your paranormal friends for Christmas.
Also we have just added some more content to the Field Place case file in the post investigation page which basically lays out who the suspects are we are looking to identify .
Matt is busy growing a moustache for charity through November if there are any ultimately amusing photographs of this we will share on his profile page :).
Lib now returned from her maternity leave is keen to get back into the thick of things PIGS .
Lauren is soon to go out on maternity leave but will be in close contact while she is away.
Tori is on the job of trying to find teams that would like to investigate with us and Kevin who is a seasoned investigator will soon be updating his profile page
Kevin is a brilliant writer and we will be asking him to give his ultimately amusing commentary on several things paranormal.
We were very pleased with the Field Place investigation and will over the next few weeks be adding the data to the case file .
Proud to announce
The PIGS are proud to announce that Mr Kevin Ling has joined the team. Kevin is a well respected and very experienced investigator with a fantastic scenes of humour. Kevin's code name will be Foxtrot Alpha and we very much look forward to having him with us :)
The Mirus case file data is coming on well with all the EVP's now processed an published all of the first night of CCTV watched and stills taken, some of the incident board examined also the environment data retrieved and published we have only the second nights CCTV and other video to process.
Field place report that all spaces have now sold out so looks like its going to be a very busy night looking for the various ghosts with a great host of guests to help us.
The return from Mirus
Currently we are looking through the collected data from Batterie Mirus. With our teams there were 52 EVP recordings. Each recording contains a number of questions. From the first six files we have collected 18 questions that have a possible response although we wont know for sure if the captures are of any value until we have properly examined the sounds that follow the questions asked.
The all new web site hits the net running
Welcome to the PIGS site we hope you enjoy the much revised content and navigation. If you find any bugs, broken links, typos or other please let us know.
August news update
Much has been happening in the PIGS this month . Firstly a HUGE congratulations to Lib and Mark on the Birth of their daughter Sophie , all are doing very well, Lib as you may know won the PIGS annual certificate for outstanding contribution for 2010 .
Matt Laker has appeared twice on One man and a show which is live every Tuesday night on ParaRock TV.
Amy and Tori joined up with Farsight PRS for an investigation in to Eastbourne's Hippodrome theatre.
Tim has appeared as special guest on Swindon 105.5 FM the outer limit show with Paul Develin and has agreed to return again before the end of 2011,
Tim will also be appearing on Brighton Reverb FM soon to talk about the PIGS and all things spooky.
Tim also was asked to do a screen test for BBC America this month which he has done and we will have to wait and see if he managed to make it or break their camera.
The new PIGS.co.uk will now most likely have a soft launch soon and a major upgrade launch late September we hope to bring new and exciting standard to our paranormal web site much as we did with the old PIGS.co.uk 5 years ago with livestream, case files, live EVP, funny videos etc etc. this time we have some new stuff to bring again .
...Just back from the Haunted Castle weekend in Jersey
