A stairwell that was installed in a block of apartments leading to the basement parking area was installed by a company that seems to not exist.

The Broadwell appartment block had a new stairwell installed some years ago, 1967, it gave the residents access from the outside area into the autoparking area. However, it was during the 1980's that people say they had seen strange people coming up the stairwell, when they have been going down, so much so that cctv was installed to monitor the stairs.

When the cctv footage was checked one day before erasing the tape, the security guy saw a tall figure ascend from the stairwell, he was dressed in a silver kind of jumpsuit, his face was not clear, as if misty, perhaps the light playing tricks. It was what happened next with the stranger, he just vanished from the place he was standing. The cctv continued to run, but he was gone.

The security guy thought it was a blip in the cctv equipment , at least until it happened on several other occasions. It was then that the police were called in, and matters took a different turn. They enlarge the cctv images and were puzzeled that the faces of two images appeared to be as if covered with a visor of some kind, and that what they could see was not any resident at the apartment block, indeed these images showed that behind those two images they could see faces with extraordinarly large eyes.

In the coming weeks the police set up a number of their own detection devices, down in the parking area and above at the stairwell entry.

It was the activity they recorded in the basement that was most unusual, these strange people seemed to be emerging from nowhere in the vicinity of parking bay 12.

What happened next is beyond explanation, two police officers started a search of bay 12, their collegues saw them walk into bay 12, then they say they disappeared.

In fact this all happened in June of 1967, and those two police officers were counted as missing without trace or explanation. They were never found, at least not until many years later.

It was the year 1997 the month was June, George Latimer, a resident of the Broadwell apartments was just parking his car, about to reverse into bay 12. Suddenly he slammed his brakes on and put the car into neutral, he was shocked and most appologetic as two police officers started shouting out to him, in fact they became quite angry, asking him what he was doing, that they were on a police investigation. However things suddenly changed as one of the police officers noticed that the car the man was driving did not have a correct registration plate, it was at this point that things started to unfold. The owner of the car showed his insurance and drivers identity, the officer who looked at them looked confused and consuted with his collegue, together the officers looked around and looked for their other collegues. They attempted to use their radio handsets but were unable to make any contact.

The owner of the car asked them if they would like to use his phone, which they were grateful for, but when he produced a small device that they had never seen before they were even more confused. The owner of the car asked them what the problem was and one officer shook his head, he replied, 'Perhaps you should call Police HQ for us, I am sorry I dont know how to use that thing?'

Later that day they were identified as the two officers that went missing 30 years ago, they looked no older and believed that they were only just searching the area when the car started to back in on them.

To this day no explanation can be given, and only refuse bins are parked in bay 12 these days.
