A FORMER prison where executions were staged and women and children died in poverty during the 19th century is to be studied by expert investigators in a bid to explain "odd goings on".

The ten-strong team from Glamorgan Paranormal Investigations will set up cameras and sound-recording equipment in the cells of Jedburgh Castle Jail, a Howard reform prison before its conversion into a museum.

It will be the first time the Wales-based group has conducted research in Scotland, and the overnight investigation later this month follows claims from several visitors that they experienced strange presences and saw unusual shapes of light while in the jail.

The Jedburgh prison was used mainly to hold debtors, although many criminals were hanged on the site before the jail was built. There are a number of ghost stories associated with the property, and a long-dead piper is said to play on the battlements during the hours of darkness.

Anne Piper, the member of the Glamorgan team who suggested the Jedburgh property for their latest investigation, was quick to stress they would not be trying to prove the prison was haunted. She said the aim of the group was to collate evidence, visual, radio or sensory, from around the country.

So far they had carried out six investigations and reports on each would be published on the group
