The human magnet: Mother has amazing power to make metal stick to her body (and she also sets off car alarms)
Looking on the bright side, she should never lose her keys.
But for mother-of-one Brenda Allison, her mysterious 'power' that means metallic objects stick to her body has long since lost its attraction.
Dubbed 'the human magnet', Miss Allison says she is often embarrassed by the effect, which she has been told is down to a heightened electromagnetic current running through her body.
Attraction: Brenda Allison, 50, is so magnetically charged that metal objects including coins, keys and even tin lids stick to her for up to 45 minutes
The accounts manager says coins, safety pins, magnets, spanners and even a metal lid from a Vaseline pot can stay on her body for up to 45 minutes without falling off.
When the pulse is at its strongest, she says she can even dance in her living room without them coming off.
For as long as she can
remember, she explains, her body has set
off car alarms, interrupted the TV signal and blown out light bulbs.
