Lancashire - United Kingdom

EducationLancashire has a mostly comprehensive system with four state grammar schools. Not including sixth form colleges, there are 77 state schools (not including Burnley's new schools) and 24 independent schools. The Clitheroe area also has secondary modern schools. Sixth form provision is limited at most schools in most districts, with only Fylde and Lancaster districts having mostly sixth forms at schools. The rest (most schools) depend on FE colleges and sixth form colleges, where they exist. South Ribble has the largest school population, with Fylde the smallest (only three schools). B

So I was reading this story in the Lancashire Evening Post. It was kind of "ghost related" (its 3rd cousin twice removed perhaps?) So I homed in on it like a kamikazi spiritualist pidgeon. The details of this event were astounding, I can see why its generated such an interest in a slow news week, especially amongst the terminally befuddled.
