THE terrifying black-eyed child haunting Cannock Chase is only after a scooter, it explained.
The child, who has been approaching solitary walkers with a blood-curdling scream, was trying to get their attention before pointing out what it wanted in the Toys R Us catalogue.
800-year-old ghost child Tom Booker said: “It’s got Ben 10 Alien Force on it, which is my favourite show to watch while standing silently at the windows. And you can do tricks on it like Tony Hawk.
“Please can I have it, please? If you don’t let me I’ll open a portal to the underworld and watch as you’re dragged down screaming to the Stygian depths. Please?”
Residents agreed to get the ghost the scooter, but have warned that was the last present until Christmas and no driving anyone mad.
