A group of amateur film-makers believe they may have proof that ghosts really do exist after one of them caught something strange on camera.
George Gunn said he captured pictures of a ghostly apparition while out walking along a footpath in Outwood, near Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Mr Gunn, a member of Outwood Community Video Club, said he thought the figure looked like that of a Roman soldier.
He said he had heard tales of ghosts being seen in the area.
But he added: “I still don’t believe in them.”
The apparition appears to be still in the footage, but fades momentarily as two people jog through it.
Mr Gunn did not notice the figure until he reviewed his film later in the day.
Mr Gunn said: “I’ve had the camera for quite a while now and I have never had any problems with lighting or sun glare or anything like that.
“There is something peculiar about it.”
Mike Hooley, who is also a member of the video club, said: “George rang me up and said: ‘Do you believe in ghosts?’
“I said ‘no’ and I still don’t but when I saw the film I was quite amazed really.”
Members of the video club are now planning to do their own research into whether there were any Roman settlements in the area.
