"Spooked staff at one of Britain's oldest inns spotted the shadowy spectre on CCTV footage
Spooked staff at one of Britain's oldest pubs believe they have caught a ghost on CCTV.
The freaky footage, which appears to show a shadowy figure flickering into view by the bar, was filmed at Ye Olde Man and Scythe in Bolton.
Manager Tony Dooley spotted the spectre when he checked the cameras on Friday morning and found they had mysteriously stopped recording at 6.18am.

"We checked the footage and it revealed this figure.

that." - Manchester Evening News
