Pub spirit is a western film star

THE ghostly figure of a COWBOY walks in front of a roaring fire in a haunted pub and is caught on video.


Spooky ... the ghost walks through the pub

Locals are convinced paranormal forces are at play and that the spooky sighting is definitely a GHOST.

Just visible is a Stetson style hat and a waistcoat. Caught as pals tested out the video mode on a new mobile phone, the strange presence was NOT seen until the recording was played back.

And landlords have told of similar spooky goings-on in the same pub in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffs. Spooked

Filmed by local Andy Willett and pals Macca and Vince Bundy, the bizarre footage spooked all three.

"It has to be a ghost," Mr Bundy, 43, said. "There is no other explanation." "We didn't see it while we were sitting there, only when we played the video.

"I couldn't believe it.

"You can make out a hat and a waistcoat. I've never seen a video as clear as this before. It's not a fake, it actually happened."

The Tunstall pub called the Ancient Briton, now a derelict site after it was targeted by arsonists, was thought to be HAUNTED.

Mr Bundy, who has hung on to the footage for three years, said: "One previous landlord told a local his young son used to talk to 'another little boy'.

"And one tenant's child spoke of a COWBOY who used to pick-up his socks."

Singer and UFO fan Robbie Williams used to live near the pub.
