London, Feb 12: A Brit schoolboy has managed to capture a ghostly image on his mobile of what he claims to be a ghost walking towards the banisters at his home.
Reece Pitman, 12, of Solihull, Birmingham, who first heard whistling then saw the shadowy being, was very terrified as he showed the footage to his 38-year-old mum Tonia.
"Reece looked scared witless," the Sun quoted her as saying.
"In the clip a white shadow appears from my bedroom followed by the dark image of a man.
"It crosses the landing and disappears when it reaches the banisters," she stated.
The shadowy image had appeared days after his nine-year-old sister complained that someone was mysteriously finishing her jigsaws at night.
Tonia, who works as a sales assistant, said she consulted a psychic who told her the ghost could be friendly.
"I've had a tough time recently as my husband left me. I didn't believe in ghosts - but I'm thinking of the spectre as my guardian angel," she added.
Julian Banks of the British Paranormal Society said the film was "potentially the best image of a ghost in years".
