A mum was left terrified after she watched a video of her young son cycling only to see a ghostly Victorian apparition looking over him.
Louise Lenton, 41, caught the spooky footage on camera as she took her five-year-old son to ride his bike at Oldway Mansion, a property that dates back to the 19th century.
She filmed him going round in circles and later watched the footage back only to discover what appears to be a ghost watching over her son.
Louise, from Paignton, Devon, said: “My partner and I had split off, with him going to walk the dogs on the fields and I took our little boy to the car park to practise riding his bike.
“The car park is flat and perfect to do it. I was just filming him and that was it.
“It wasn’t until I was home and in bed watching the film back when I noticed it.
“I was like, ‘oh my gosh’ and my partner could not explain it. Neither of us know what this is.
“When I was filming I didn’t see it at all. I was too busy filming. I screen shot it and zoomed in straight away.
“It looks like a lady with hair in a bun, with white cuffs around her hands.”
Louise approached Torbay Council about the mystery figure, which said only security guards would have been inside the building the day the footage was taken.
She added: “It’s certainly not a security guard from what I can tell. The outfit the woman is wearing appears to have white cuffs and it looks Victorian.
“I would love to know who or what it was.”
