There doesn't seem to be anything in the report that suggest a link with the Springheeled Jack encounters of the past and this encounter, they don't mention anything to connect the two.

A dark figure at night in England = Spring-heeled Jack?   Just like Bearded face image = Jesus. I am skeptical.

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

"He’s probably a physical phenomenon. He was witnessed by two people, a child and a taxi driver so he’s something physical which rules out any ghosts."  

Cuz EVERYBODY knows you can't believe in ghosts if you drive a taxi... some "expert"

Duh! Why is this even news?! Even if the ghost didn't appear since 1986, it still can come back whatever time it wants too.

I was thinking about this case and got a chill down my spin.  On that very peace of road a witnessed a fatality on Christmas eve as I guy got knocked down running across the dual carriageway.  I remember he was carrying bags full of wrapped Christmas presents.  Hit me hard at the time as I was a fairly new driver, I can remember to much detail and would prefer not to discuss it in full in case any relatives read this.  But from growing up in that area I reckon it would be at the near enough exact spot.  Must have been around 1992-1993.

This could be any dark figure. Not spring heeled jack.

Why do they think its spring heeled Jack? Sounds like a shadow person sighting to me.

I don't suffer from insanity, I rather enjoy it

I'm not really seeing the SHJ connection... did the figure cross the road in twelve foot bounds or something? the article really doesn't give a good reason to liken the dark figure seen to SHJ.

The family likened it to Spring Heeled Jack, according to the story, so that's the link.

But I think we should give this fella a new name of his own, since there's no real connection.

The Ewell Sprinter?

Boing-man?

Isn't Jeepers Creepers supposed to be loosely based around the Spring Heeled Jack legend? If you haven't seen the movie, you haven't missed much.

I like Jeepers Creepers before you see what it is....then it just looks silly x

I thought I saw something run across the road near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire late one night on way home from work....I hadn't been drinking and it seemed so real that I screamed  (which is very unlike me, as not a really girly girl or a screamer for that matter!)  my Husband slammed on the brakes as he thought he was going to hit something, he just saw a black shape, but I saw something tall and black bounding across the road. No idea what it was...other than it frightened the pap out of me!!!

No offense intended, but there seems to be a lot of dark figures running about in England.

By Keymaker in The Underground Archives, on 09 March 2012 - 10:44 AM

Paranormal experts and monster hunters have been queuing up to give their interpretation of a mysterious "dark figure with no features" spotted in Ewell last month. ...
