'Ghost' of Scottish soldier photographed by 14 year old (video)

ghost of scottish soldier
A teenage boy has snapped what he believes to be the ghostly figure of a soldier during a school visit to war graves in France.

Mitch Glover snapped the images at the Neuville-St Vaast German war cemetery near Arras, in northern France, scene of bloody battles nearly a hundred years ago.

The 14-year-old used an atmospheric black and white setting to take four pictures with his iPhone.

In one of the four, a pale shape can be seen at the left of the frame.

Glover, from Leamington Spa, decided to research the history of the region and discovered the shape of the apparition could resemble that of the kilt and Tam o’Shanter uniform of the historic Seaforth Highlander regiment.

The largest German cemetery in France, containing 44,833 burials, it is located a few hundred metres away from Nine Elms military cemetery. Buried at Nine Elms are twelve N.C.O'S. and men of the 114th Seaforth Highlanders who fell on the 9th April, 1917.

Ghost of little girl photographed in haunted UK pub

GHOST HUNTERS  claim to have captured a photo of the spirit of a little girl inside a 300-year-old pub in Llan Ffestiniog.

The Gwynedd Paranormal Investigation’s team, who were specifically set up to raise money for local charities in the Gwynedd and north Wales area, visited the Pengwern pub recently and conducted a four hour ghost hunt inside the building.

There has been a pub on the site of the Pengwern in the centre of Llan Ffestiniog for nearly 300 years. The Pengwern used to be an important location for the drovers as it was used as a place to shoe the animals before crossing the Migneint.

“It was originally called Yr Efail but was changed to The Pengwern Arms Hotel sometime in the 19th century.

Local residents had contacted the paranormal team to ask if they’d visit after they’d heard of the spooky goings on inside the building.

Zoe Callow from the team said: “We’d been told by some local residents that a lot of people had died there over the years from different illnesses and diseases, we also heard there was a tunnel underground which ran to a church and bodies were buried down there.
