I would imagine that is an area, during business hours, that has someone standing there a lot and under a brighter light.

Yes, that can indeed cause a partial "burn-in" on a loop tape.

EDIT: I work with computers, and I know that a hard-drive can suffer from prior corruption if that newly recorded area is not "cleaned" 3 or even 7 times prior.

A "residual effect" due to the way magnetic coatings tend to slightly hold on to prior recordings.

Some CCTV recording devices use loop tapes(VCR type tapes, but looped) for recording, whereas others use a hard drive, which is often re-recorded(depending on capacity)

There is no technical advantage to looping(in fact rather it's a hinderance), just cost savings.

Either way, with tapes or hard drives, true "scrubbing" takes time, and the more expensive systems use a dual recording media(one is "scrubbed" while the other one already "scrubbed" automatically takes over the recording.

I don't know, but I somewhat doubt that the pub in question had the more expensive system.

The way that the video cuts out makes me suspect somethings up.

I agree that the light in the background on what looks like a wall next to a door could be headlights.

Yeah, the "cut" could be for any number of reasons, but the lights and moving shadows could most certainly be explained by an outside moving light source.

Can just tell its not genuine. Stinks of cgi or some kind of editing. For me it is very easy to tell a fake with just one viewing.

It's probably not fake but it's likely not a ghost either. Many good explanations for these anomolies have been pointed out already in this thread.

I go for the looped or superimposition analysis. I swear that you can make out the barman on the right hand side and other customers.

That's police car lights and just around the time the figure appears it seems there are glass panel reflections around it.  Come to think of it, why would a ghost be reflective?

I don't know what to make of it tbh but i'm more inclined to say its probably headlights. Looks creepy though. Is it just me or has this site gone a bit stale lately? Every-time something interesting pops up its dismissed instantly as cgi or fake. Granted most things are probably those things but wheres the fun in not entertaining the possibility that it could be real? Even on things where no-one has a definitive answer its branded as fake or cgi.

The pub isn't on a highway, just a street, but like everyone else says its probably headlights. Those lights also seem to reflect and ghosts never show up in mirrors or reflections of any sort

I love British Pubs. They're so civilized.  In America we just have Bars, Honky-Tonks, and  Cantinas.

No need for the explainations. Its video editng, CGI whatever you want to call it. Well done though i give them that but still, its not a great standard and is glaringly obvious. The flashing light is 100% real and on the original footage but everything else is added.

I disagree. I don't see the need for foul play or "fakery" when, as others have pointed out, there are natural explanations for why a cctv camera could produce these results. Why leap straight to the assumption that someone faked it? It's clearly not a ghost but that doesn't mean the post isn't legitimate.

I have a few theories on this case.

A) Ambulance/Police lights, This can causes shadows and random movement a long the wall.

B). Constant over taping the tape, The blinking and imagines are over lapping video footage, There been a few cases where the timer has had two numbers in it. Look at frame 15 and frame 27.

This is good.

Anyways aformentioned post- Your friend should've checked for any way to debunk the ghost tape, quote above this explains it all.

So this skeptical paranormal team (yes there are people out there who are skeptics and go paranormal hunting) made a mimic version of the pub.



It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.
