'Ghost' images spook staff at former Cumbrian funeral parlour

A spooky mystery is the talk of a Cumbrian town after a pub and the business next door captured ghostly images on their security cameras.

Have your say

Its an insect on the lense. Case closed!

I was in the Wolfe a few months ago, it was really quiet and a pint glass fell off the table I was standing near - nobody else was at the table or at a distance where they could have knocked it. A member of staff came over to clear the broken glass and mentioned that the same thing had happened at the same table a couple of days earlier.

For heavens sake its a spider! Clearly you can see how light bends from the fibres on its hairy back, causing the "ghostly" reflection that you are wanting to call it!
This wasn't even worth putting on the news.

withall todays modern technology computer immages etc.there must be able to pin point a ghost. ok years ago i worked at kingstown industrial estate carlisle.our building had problems.the lights were switched off at 5 pm the next morning there were all on.certain areas were ice cold, we fit 2 large gas heating syestems. it was still ice cold.we had an outer passage door, from the main office you heard the door then hear someone walking towards the tradecounter no one was there.during stocktaking stock was falling off the racks onto the floor,wires were put between every fixture to prevent that happening,the stock still fell onto the floor.at aroun 6.30pm i was in there on my own sitting on a chair stock taking i noticed a guy in grey raf uniform and flying boots walk down the next rack other members of staff talked about there experiences, we knicknamed our ghost' tommy' a member of our office staff decided to stay back and work on his own 3 hours latter our supervisor returned to the building the delivery bay door was wide open the lad who stayed back had gone,he visited is house he told our supervisor that he had decided to leave the job,he wouldnt tell anybody anything. other warehouses in the area reported things unreal things bombers parked up on the car park etc aircrews walking to planes. this was on gearshill road carlisle 1989.i must admit i was scared to be up there during the dark nights.

You people will do anything to try and sell papers or increase beers sales .... Pathetic.
An insult to genuine paranormal investigators! Typical. take something, blow if out of proportion and then try and sell newspapers off it and no doubt it will generate the sales of beer at the pub from the curious, easy duped public as well. 'nice for the land-lord eh?.If it was really unexplained or paranormal then fab.
But a fly??? Please give your readers some credit. What an insult.

It seems to me that most of you are not very observant, it is not a bug purely because of the way it zooms off to the top right corner, a bug does not stretch its self when flying off a lense or anything else. Therefore to draw a conclusion on the whole spook tape. The tape was altered using the computer you can clearly see from where they are are watching the footage that there are also 2 programs open on the bottom of the windows 7 tab bar. if someone took the time to enhance the image they will probably find that its an AV Editing program. Any Multimedia trained person will see that a blur with 'Frankly' an unrealistic flyby effect is easily repricatable. Also if you watch the tape this is also proven as at each stage of the so 'Called' spook manifesting its self that each blur just pops up in the picture where they are intending the spook to be. You can see it so therefore it is not a fly or a spook but purely Computer generated of CGI for short.
