Staff at one of Britain's oldest pubs, rumoured to be haunted by an aristocrat executed during the Civil War, believe they have caught a ghost on CCTV.
The footage, which appears to show a shadowy figure flickering into view by the bar, was filmed at Ye Olde Man and Scythe in Bolton on Valentine's Day.
Tony Dooley, the pub's manager, spotted the spectre when he checked the cameras on Friday morning and found they had stopped recording at 6.18am.
"I came down and saw a glass smashed on the floor so I was instantly suspicious and went to check the CCTV and found it has stopped working," he said.
"We checked the footage and it revealed this figure. To be honest I was a bit concerned - I'm a bit of a sceptic when it comes to ghosts but you become more of a believer when you see things like that."

interesting but i do wish these ghosts and spirits weren't so camera shy and posed.
If ever you think your being watched, or there's something under the bed, don't just look once to check, look again carefully, just because you cant see them, doesn't mean there not there. in the vastness of existence and reality everything is possible, every fear is there, if its not under your bed now it will be soon. sleep tight.
I filmed in my home for months Aaron & whilst i appreciated the orb activity i would have appreciated even more some poltergeist activity like things moving, but one thing i hoped would never happen is the appearance of any ghosts or apparitions , i don't think i would feel very comfortable in bed at night after seeing such things,i reckon they know this & that's why i have had zero appearances, i have had poltergeist activity though in the past & literally right in front of my face which i found Very intriguing & appreciated a lot!.
