Demolition workers were given a fright after photographing a ghostly figure peering through the window of a derelict Victorian guesthouse.
David Grimshaw, a former resident at the property, said he was convinced the figure is the ghost of his mother, who died nearly a year ago aged 87.
He believes her spirit may have appeared to protest at the demolition of Meadowbank House, which she adored.
“That is my mother. I’m totally convinced – no one else looks like that. She had glasses and big earrings and she used to wear a dress with a bow at the front,” he said.
Demolition supervisor Robert Johnson, 38, of Heysham, took the photograph of the house shortly before it was knocked down, earlier this week but it was only later that he noticed the ghostly figure.

Yep, it does look very convincingly like a woman, jewelry and everything. But that does not mean that it is an actual ghost. If this is the best we can do for ghost evidence, it’s not enough to convince me since worldly explanations may still apply.
