A woman reckons she may have snapped a photo of a ghost woman while out and about in a historical coastal graveyard.
Mandy Steel, from Sunderland in Tyne and Wear, took a trip to Tynemouth Priory in North Tyneside with her grown-up children on Saturday 13 August.
She whipped out her camera to get a few photos of the ancient ruins, but looking back after the images later Mandy spotted a ghostly figure of a woman dressed in old-fashioned clothing standing behind a family.
As is often the case when people catch alleged apparitions on camera, Mandy said she didn’t see the woman when she took the photo.
And even after scanning through the rest of the shots, she didn’t spot anyone wearing a similar outfit. Cue the creepy music.
Mandy said: “It's really odd because my daughter was also taking photos of the same place at the same time, but her phone didn't pick anything up.
“I checked my full lot of photos to see if anyone was dressed like that but no one was wearing a hat.
“Plus, everyone was wearing summer clothes. I just don't know who or what this was.”
Well, Mandy, it's quite clearly a ghost, if you ask me.
In the photo there appears to be a woman standing near the cliffside wearing a long coat and hat.
Mandy went on to say that the photo was taken at around 1pm, looking towards South Shields beach, where the visibility was good.
Mandy said she had tried contacting the priory and the National Trust for information on her strange sighting, but claimed ‘they weren't any help'. Well, you know you have to call now, don’t you?
This isn’t the first time someone has claimed to have seen a ghost at the spot - I mean, looking at the place, it does seem to be a prime location for a spectre or two.
Back in February last year, paranormal investigator Kayleigh Woods took some photos in the same area and after looking back at them saw an unusual figure.
After taking the shot, Kayleigh sent it to her aunt, but soon noticed a shadowy figure hanging out near the ruins.
Posting on the Facebook group Paranormal Newcastle, she wrote: "Nobody can see any reason the shadow would be there other than that of a person. But there wasn’t anyone in that area at the time of the photo."
