Woman Catches Ghostly Figure On Camera While Filming Her Son

Woman Catches Ghostly Figure On Camera While Filming Her Son

A mother who recorded her son playing on his bike later discovered a spooky, ghost-like figure in the background of the video



A 41-year-old mother from Devon has been left trembling after she spotted a ghostly figure lurking in the background of a video she recorded of her young son cycling.

The spooky scene took place at Oldway Mansion, a property that dates back to the 19th century, where Louise was filming her five-year-old son ride his bike in the cark park.

Later that evening, while she was watching the footage back, she noticed what looks a lot like a Victorian-era figure watching over her son from a second-storey window.

Louise said: "My partner and I had split off, with him going to walk the dogs on the field and I took our little boy to the car park to practise riding his bike.


"The car park is flat and perfect to do it. I was just filming him and that was it.

"It wasn't until I was home and in bed watching the film back when I noticed it.

"I was like, 'oh my gosh' and my partner could not explain it. Neither of us know what this is.

"When I was filming I didn't see it at all. I was too busy filming. I screen shot it and zoomed in straight away.

"It looks like a lady with hair in a bun, with white cuffs around her hands."


Louise, who also takes a cynical approach to the paranormal - until now - contacted Torbay Council about the mysterious Victorian lady.

The Council told her that the only people who could have been inside the building that day were security guards.

Louise added: "It's certainly not a security guard from what I can tell. The outfit the woman is wearing appears to have white cuffs and it looks Victorian."

But now it has emerged that the apparition was indeed just a guard wearing a cardigan.

Security guard Alex Warren, 68, came forward on a community Facebook group to announce that he was the ghost.

Alex said: "I wear my black cardigan inside and my security coat for outside patrols.

"That day I was just admiring the young lad, learning to ride his bike.

"Hope this clears up the misunderstanding.

"There are, to my knowledge - no ghosts at Oldway, and I have worked days and nights here for over four years."
