Lawyers really are fearless when it comes to pursuing alternative careers. First we brought you the human cannonball, now we present the night watchperson at a reputedly haunted London theatre.

Corporate lawyer Holly Boyd beat fierce competition from 500 applicants to secure the job at the Arts Theatre, which had witnessed spooky goings-on. A camera in the auditorium turned itself on and took photos overnight, while another left running recorded a theatre seat falling down of its own accord.

Obiter tried to get hold of the fearless ghostbuster Boyd, but to no avail. We trust our lack of success does not mean she has been spirited away.
