New video footage shows ghost at Britain's oldest haunted pub (video)

A tourist has recorded new footage which appears to show a ghost in the window of Britain’s ‘most haunted’ pub.

The 19 second clip shows a strange light flickering in a first floor window of Bolton’s 763-year-old Ye Olde Man and Scythe.

The man taking the video - speaking in Portuguese - describes the old Churchgate boozer as ‘one of the oldest’ in England, adding: “And the most haunted.”

Just after he refers to a famous CCTV clip - which became an internet hit after the MEN first published it in February - something strange can be seen in the first floor window.

As the man talks about the ‘crazy cider’ for which the pub is known, a flickering light appears in the window.

Pub manager Tony Dooley says the clip is further proof the pub is haunted.

Tony, 36, said: “I’m not too happy about it. That’s my flat behind the window. My attitude before I became the manager nine months ago was not to believe in ghosts. I’m convinced now.”

Only a few weeks ago he said he was woken by what he thought what his partner’s pet dog Kallie licking his feet only to discover the animal was fast asleep.

“My feet were clammy and wet, like sweaty palms only worse. I went straight to the bathroom and took a shower with the dog in the room making sure nothing else happened. It was creepy. My attitude is as long the ghost doesn’t harm me then that’s fine,” said Tony.
