A 72-year-old man thought he might be going senile when metal objects kept tidying themselves into a container at night in his shed. His children suggested it might be a poltergeist.

About a month after his garden shed began to tidy itself, Steve McKears decided to settle the mystery and prove his sanity so he set up a camera.

The viral footage revealed one very determined, house-proud mouse.

McKears, who lives in the village of Severn Beach near the city of Bristol in the south of England was astonished.

“We were amazed at what he was doing, we just couldn’t believe it,” he told Sky News.

“The heaviest thing was the plastic attachment at the end of a hose pipe—and the chain of an electric drill.”

“I didn’t know what it was at first. The kids were saying it was a ghost,” McKears said.

“One day I emptied the tub out and spread the contents on the side—and the next day they were all back in again.”

The trail camera had been set up by a friend of his who is a wildlife photographer. According to McKears, the mouse spent two hours tidying away the objects in front of the camera.

In February McKears had first noticed a few plastic clips finding their way into the container, which he uses to store bird feed. But when he started leaving other objects out, they started to find their way there too.
