From The Carlisle (U.K.) News & Star:
GHOST hunters who break into a mysterious and remote Lake District house could be putting their lives at risk because of the dangerous state of the property.
Police and local authority officials are concerned about a series of break-ins at Rigg Beck, the famous purple house at the foot of Newlands Hause, midway between Keswick and Buttermere.
A police spokesman said that teenagers had been coming to the house, which once provided theatrical lodgings for the likes of Tom Courtenay and Bob Hoskins and was a favourite of poet Ted Hughes.
Ted Hughes was also a regular visitor and Mrs Vee kept copies of letters and poems he sent to her.
