I CAN SEE ...YOUR CHEATING PARTNER!; Psychic who has turned super-sleuth.

Byline: TONY LARNER

CLAIRVOYANT Sylvia Irving is predicting a bright future for her new business - the country's first psychic detective agency.

The crystal-ball gazer has turned super-sleuth to help track down missing people or catch out cheating partners.

Sylvia, 43, has been a clairvoyant since 1980 and had her first ghostly encounter at the age of seven.

Now the mum-of-five is following in the spooky footsteps of TV detectives Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) by turning to the spirit world to help solve her cases.

Sylvia launched Heaven and Earth Psychic Investigations in Smethwick, Birmingham, during the summer.

And the private eye, who charges up to pounds 70 per day, has already used her supernatural powers to crack cases - and repair relationships.

'My phone hasn't stopped ringing since I opened for business,' she said. 'And one of the first cases I took on was also one of my most rewarding.

'A woman asked if I could find out if her husband was having an affair. I proved he was by using my clairvoyant skills, including tarot card reading, and putting him under surveillance.

'Spying on people wasn't something I had ever done before but I knew it was vital if I was to gain concrete proof.

Great future

'The case could have signalled the end of the marriage. But it turned out to be a turning point because I told them, despite the affair, I could see they would have a great future together.

'I suppose you could say I now see myself as a counsellor as well as a psychic detective.'

Sylvia, who lives in Smethwick, knew she had a psychic gift at a very young age.

'My family home was a big Victorian property near the city centre of Birmingham,' she said. 'From the age of seven I used to see the ghost of a lady, dressed in grey, roaming around the house.

'I had other psychic experiences over the years and in my 20s I decided to go into business as a clairvoyant.

'I used to read tarot cards for the majority of customers and tell them what their future held. But over the years I got more and more requests from men and women asking if I could tell them if their partners were cheating.

'Others would ask if I could help find missing relatives. They were all desperate and I knew I could help them maybe more than ordinary agencies because I was a clairvoyant.

'I charge up to pounds 70 a day but if someone is hard-up or broke, I am always willing to negotiate my fee.

'Money was never the main motivation for setting up this detective agency. I believe I have been given a gift to help people.'
