Ghost terrorising local pub caught on camera

A ghost hunter claims to have finally caught a female 'entity' on camera, which has been terrorising his local pub for years by throwing glasses around.

Andrew Williamson claims he can feel ghostly presences and uses his paranormal ability to capture 'extreme photographs'.

While investigating a reported haunting at the Griffin Inn in Wakefield, Yorkshire, the 54-year-old sensed a presence of a lady in the darkness with him.

The youth worker quickly took a picture and had his suspicions confirmed as the image shows the ghostly shape of a woman stood with her back to him looking at the wall, despite him being alone at the time.

“I didn't expect what I got,” Andrew says.

"It is a woman. She never gave her name, she was saying nothing to nobody. I just knew there was an entity there.

"The pub has a history of things happening when the place is closed up at night, which show up on CCTV but not what is causing them.

"There are regular things that happen in the night, like glasses falling off a shelf for no particular reason and bottles falling on the floor when no one is in."

The Griffin Inn's landlord Michael Briggs was unsurprised by Andrew's incredible capture because stories about a woman haunting the bar have been going on for years.

"I have seen glasses flying off shelves on their own and so on. We have a few people who say they have seen [paranormal] stuff and heard odd things too,” Michael says.

"There have been plenty of spooky goings-on. We have a lot of regulars who have been coming here for years and years so they have seen some stuff.

"I have never seen anything [as clear as this picture] myself apart from things falling off shelves on their own and I have heard some odd noises in the night as I live above the pub.

“It all adds to the charm and character of the place."

Andrew says the wife of the pub's former owner before Michael took over, who wished to remain anonymous, had admitted a 'strong feeling' of the entity's presence, however had never seen anything.

"She had this feeling, especially during the day time, that there was a woman and a child following her all time,” Andrew explains.

"As soon as I laid the photos down for her to see, that was the final realisation for them."

Andrew says that his ability as a clairvoyant and an empath allow him to 'feel' and locate entities so that he can try to capture pictures of them.

With a background in photography, Andrew experiments by taking photos in the pitch black but with longer shutter speeds so that some light is picked up.

He positioned himself in an area of the pub where he had sensed the entity and took a photo of the wall with no one there, but with a longer shutter speed to see what the Canon SL1 camera detected.

“Because it was a pretty big place I would go to different parts of the room and I would get it into my head what particular settings I would need on my camera – setting up to take photos in that part of the environment,” he says.

"You can see a light and it looks as though there is a light on but there wasn't."
