London, Apr 6 (ANI): A tyre depot boss was spooked when he saw a phantom leaving 70-year-old King George VI penny coins on the floor at the dead of night.
Earlier, the ghostly figure, said to materialise from time to time in 1940s clothing, pelted staff with coins by day and moved tyres around the locked building overnight.
The depot in Doncaster, South Yorks, is a former chapel that served as a wartime morgue.
Father-of-four Nick White bought it in 2007.
"I took all the strange stories with a very big pinch of salt. It seemed so far-fetched. But this is scary. The place is locked at night," the Daily Express quoted White as saying.
Psychic researchers now plan to spend a night at the depot, once named by The Rough Guide To Unexplained Phenomena as one of the spookiest places in Britain.
Nick said: "It's all right being sceptical about these things but I'm the owner of two very old pennies now and I'd love to know where they came from. It's a shame they're only worth 1 pound." (ANI)
