A guide who organises spooky ghost walks for Halloween has been exposed as a convicted sex offender who uses a fake name.
Alex Bulloch runs tours called the Glasgow Ghost Walk using the false name of Alex McGlumphy on social media – a breach of strict rules.
The 41-year-old also works as a DJ using Facebook for bookings.
“Alex the DJ” even played a Police Scotland charity event after being convicted of sex offences.
Top hat and cape-clad Bulloch promises “spooktacular fun” in the run-up to Halloween on the late night jaunts around the city.
But it’s Bulloch’s criminal past that is the real scare story.
Bulloch, from the village of New Stevenston in Lanarkshire, was convicted in 2009 and sentenced to 18 months in jail for child sex offences.
When Bulloch was caged he was put on the sex offenders register until 2019 and banned from working with children.
Since being released from jail, brazen Bulloch has re-invented himself as a macabre guide to Glasgow’s “darker side” telling customers about “ghosts, executions, plagues, witchcraft and more.”
He uses Facebook to push his tours, but according to the platform’s own rules, convicted sex offenders are not allowed to use the site.
Bulloch also works as a part-time DJ with a company called DJ Hire Scotland, which says it provides discos, karaokes and race nights.
The website has recently been taken down but reviews on it included an organiser thanking “Alex and Team DJ Hire Scotland” for “supporting the Police Scotland versus Staffordshire Police charity boxing match” which took place in 2014 to raise funds in the wake of the Clutha helicopter disaster.
When approached at his Motherwell home to ask him if using aliases was right for someone on the sex offenders register, Bulloch said: “I couldn’t care less.”
