Ghost Video: Apparition at Haunted Pub?

Ghostly apparition or logical explanation? This video comes from the White Lion pub in Yateley, England.

According to pub manager Kate Staniszewska, the 159-year-old pub is home to many ghosts, including a female spirit that likes to make her presence known. In this video, a wispy, white figure manifests near the window before continuing up the stairs to the women’s bathroom.

“I live in the building, and so I can feel it when I pass the ghost,” Staniszewska told GetHampshire. “I’ve lived here six months and it’s happened a few times but this is the only place we have seen it.”

Of course, not everyone is convinced. Some skeptics say the video shows nothing more than smoke, while others wonder if someone has manipulated the footage to look ghostly. What do you believe?

A ghostly being or a hoodie-wearing hoodlum? This video comes from the Ye Olde Man & Scythe in Bolton, England.

Dating back to 1251, the business is Britain’s fourth oldest pub and reportedly home to a few spirits including a ghostly child, a phantom dog, and James Stanley, the Seventh Earl of Derby. On February 14, 2014, the manager of Ye Olde Man & Scythe discovered the CCTV had stopped working overnight and reviewed the footage to see why.

“We checked the footage and it revealed this figure,” manager Tony Dooley told the Manchester Daily News. “I’m a bit of a skeptic when it comes to ghosts but you become a believer when you see things like that.”

Here’s the footage in question…

UPDATE: HERE’S AN EMAIL I RECEIVED FROM MANAGER TONY DOOLEY

“Man and scythe manager here. It was not a burglar. In my own words….

On Thursday 13th Feb 2014 I closed locked and chained up the doors from the inside. I swept and tidied the bar. Turned off the lights. I went upstairs and put the alarm on. I went to bed. I awoke at around 0615 on Friday 14th Feb 2014 to a noise In the pub. After disabling the alarm I went downstairs. Upon coming into the pub I turned on the lights. At that point I found a fosters glass broken and no where near where it should be. Then I checked the doors and windows. No disturbances found. I then checked the CCTV. After viewing it a few times I gave it to my boss.

Also to set the record straight.

There’s no road facing the pub. There’s no curtains in the pub.
There’s no lighting left in except emergency lights which are a legal requirement.”

Ghost Video: Did a Bar Regular’s Ghost Ring This Bell?

Employees at England’s Exmouth Rugby Club got quite the shock Sunday afternoon when a bell mounted over the bar suddenly started to ring. CCTV footage from the club (below) shows startled workers gaping at the bell after someone, or something, yanked on the rope.

“It made us all jump because it was ringing so loud. It was really being yanked with some force,” waitress Tasmyn Burns told the Daily Mail. “I thought someone may have been playing a joke or something so I was shocked when I saw no one else was there. I don’t normally believe in ghosts but it’s quite hard not to after what happened.”

Bar staff wonder if Nigel Harris, a regular who died in 2010, is behind the eerie event. Harris was 64 when he died of a heart attack.

The ringing bell isn’t the only odd occurrence at the Exmouth Rugby Club. Manager Frank Bright heard a whistle when he was alone in the bar, while other employees have noticed muffled voices in the lounge area.

What do you think of the footage?
