A malevolent spirit has given staff at Watson, Farley & Williams a fright after taking control of one of its lifts.
Earlier this week one of the firm's three elevators broke, said a source, and "plummeted all the way from the 5th floor to the ground".
"The Tower of Terror came to life", they said, "just in time for Halloween".
The building’s owner has claimed it wasn’t quite that dramatic. A spooksman for Watchout, Faaaarghhhly and Chilliams said the landlord told it the lift did not drop, but "went into an emergency stop as a result of a safety circuit break". He added, "We have been assured by the landlord that the other lifts are safe to use". You first.
The lift at 15 Appold Street was "thankfully" empty at the time, and is now out of service until engineers repair it and priests perform an exorcism. An insider said that although WFW's other two elevators are still operational, "needless to say everyone suddenly likes the stairs".
