A mum has described how she was left terrified after watching back a video of her young son cycling, only to notice what appeared to be a ghostly apparition lurking in the background.

Louise Lenton caught the spooky footage on camera as she took her five-year-old son to ride his bike at Oldway Mansion, in Devon, England, a property that dates back to the 19th century.

She filmed him going round in circles but received a shock when she watched the footage back later.

A ‘ghostly’ woman of Victorian appearance can be seen staring out a window of the mansion, wearing a black dress.

“When I was filming I didn’t see it at all. I was too busy filming. I screen shotted it and zoomed in straight away,” the 41-year-old mum told SWNS.

“It looks like a lady with hair in a bun, with white cuffs around her hands.”

The local council insisted that it was in fact a security guard, as they would have been inside the building at the time the footage was recorded.

However, Louise is certain it wasn’t a guard from what she can tell.
