The Gorbals Vampire

Andrew gave me a heads-up on a largely neglected episode in vampire history.

It shows what happens when vampire rumours (much like the Highgate Case) spin out of control and take on a life of their own.

Stuart Nicolson's "Child Vampire Hunters Sparked Comic Crackdown" chronicles the events that lead to graveyard desecration in Glasgow, 1954, and a comic book witch hunt.
