London, Sep 15 (ANI): A man was left shocked when he spotted a 'ghost' in the CCTV footage of his UK bar.
The 'ghost' appeared at 18 minutes past midnight in the Wolfe Pub in Penrith, Cumbria, hovered in the air in the deserted bar for 31 seconds and then shot off.
Stunned Andrew Batemen, 38, showed the footage to staff at the Thomas Cook travel agents next door who said they had also captured ghostly images on their security cameras.
They believe the building was once used as a funeral parlour.
"I was with a friend and we were looking at the footage. I was about to turn it off when my mate spotted something strange. On the screen a glowing shape came down from the ceiling into the lounge and floated around the room At one point, it looked as though it were polishing tables, it seemed to pulse and then boom, it then shot off upwards through the wall and ceiling," the Sun quoted Andrew as saying.
"I don't believe in ghosts but this has really freaked me out. I've looked at a still of this thing as it shoots off and I'm sure that I can see a face. What's really strange is that something similar was going on next door," he added.
Amy Dryden, 22, who works in the Thomas Cook shop, said that she has found it difficult to sleep since seeing the footage.
"It's scary. This place used to be a funeral parlour and when I go upstairs to where we keep our brochures I often get the feeling that I'm being watched. I was amazed when I saw the CCTV from the pub," Amy speaks fearfully.
Andrew has been consulted by a medium, who said she could sense 'visitors' from the other world. (ANI)
