The haunted bus stop

Sightings of a mysterious vanishing figure at a UK bus stop have been perplexing one driver for months.

The driver who wishes to remain anonymous described how he'd observed a strange figure waiting for a bus after midnight when no bus was due. Deciding to help the person out he pulled up to give them a lift but found that there was no longer anyone there. He didn't think too much about the incident until 18 months later when he set eyes upon the same figure wearing the same clothes at the same bus stop, again mysteriously disappearing without a trace as he pulled up nearby to offer assistance. The driver is now attempting to determine if an accident occured at the location of the bus stop.

"Not wishing to be identified in case his employers worry about his state of mind, the man says he is sure there is something supernatural about a figure waiting in the road by the bus stop at the Dilke side of the road only to vanish when the kind-hearted driver offered him a lift into Cinderford."

Standing for an hour waiting on a ghost and then three come along at same time. Bloody typical.

Sounds like urban legend material which makes it hard to believe because that kinda story is heard all the time, except in most UL's the driver ends up in a gruesome accident thanks to the pesky malevolent spirit

There was supposedly a haunted railway tunnel between Dorchester where i live and Weymouth (Dorset). Drivers and passengers would often report seeing a ghostly figure, dressed in old ragged clothes walking alongside the track. He became part of local folkore and people said he was the ghost of a worker who died whilst building the Brunel designed tunnel. Anyway, years later engineers were doing an examoination of the tunnel and they find a sleeping tramp and his "den". Mystery solved.
