At 4:32am the burglar alarm from a nightclub in Oldham, Lancashire, in northern England, sounded in the police station.
Travelling to the site and meeting the owner, he police discovered no sign of a break-in but noticed something quite extraordinary. The seurity camera had been triggered into action at exactly the time when the alarm sounded. Infra-red beams intercepted by a moving objet can do this, but how had the intruder entered the building?
When the tape was played back, the answer was amazing. A ghostly, semi transparent male figure in a white shirt was seen to walk along a corridor past the beams and straight through a closed door, as if it was not there!
Unfortunately, the tape was destroyed before it could be sent to ASSAP and a copy thus be taken, although stills were secured.
