A pint glass spontaneously shattering at a pub in Sussex is caught on CCTV
The owner says that this is not the first spooky incident to occur at the boozer
Pint glasses have flown of the shelves and a chair once moved on its own
There appears to be no record of hauntings at the pub but the owner is certain
The spirit of Halloween has stuck around a pub in Sussex after a pint glass mysteriously shattered leaving staff and drinkers stunned.
CCTV footage from The Fox Eating and Drinking House in East Grinstead shows a man chatting at the bar when a glass that’s placed next to him explodes into pieces.
The man’s hand does not appear to be touching the glass and he steps back in genuine shock when it bursts, sending beer and shards flying.
Co-owner of the pub, Claire Kacy, insists the incident was not a stunt.
She said: ‘The glass exploded and we haven’t got a clue why. There was quite a few people in the bar who also witnessed it’
Mrs Kacy, 47, believes in ghosts and spirits and thinks the pub could be haunted.
She said: ‘We can’t explain it. There’s been a few other things and not just this. But this was caught on CCTV.’
Mrs Kacy, who is a mother of two, took over the pub with her business partner Tim Earley about three and a half years ago.

Soon after moving in, she said a number of other strange incidents happened, including a lid flying off an ice-cream maker ‘while it wasn’t even on’.
Mrs Kacy added: ‘Right after we moved in, I was painting the halls and a spatula flew off the bar and onto the floor. It is quite a heavy tool and we couldn’t explain it.’

She said pint glasses have also been pushed off a shelf in the cellar and about two weeks ago, a chair mysteriously moved on its own in the flat upstairs, where Mr Earley lives.
‘It’s really scary,’ she said, explaining how she now tries to avoid being in the pub alone.
‘I have looked at the pub’s history but there is no information of it being haunted.
‘There are no legends or stories attached to it.’
Mr Earley told Mrs Kacy that nothing has happened since the chair incident.
Earlier this year, MailOnline reported on a similar incident where a glass shattered spontaneously at a pub in Merseyside.
Pint glasses can break spontaneously, sometimes simply because they have a chipped edge or because its surface has been weakened by the heat of a dish washer.
