Paul Morgan photographed an unusual anomaly during a retirement party at Apsley House in Southsea.
There have been reports of a ghost at the ale-house for years, some regulars had named it "Reedy" after the actor Oliver Reed, however this is the first time anyone had claimed to have caught it on camera. "I took a few of a group of friends and it was once I looked at them a while later I noticed something strange in the background," said Morgan. "I took two shots in a matter of seconds. You can't see anything strange in the first, then a face appears in the next. It is very weird. I showed my kids and they couldn't believe it. There was no one near at the time."

Spooked pub-goers claim to have pictured the spirit they say has been haunting their local ale-house for years. Regulars at the Apsley House in Southsea, Hants, say a generous ghoul, believed to be the ghost of a former barman, keeps topping up their drinks.

Quoted from the article "Father-of-four Paul, 47, who was snapping friend Gerry Goodwin, said: 'I was taking lots of photos with my iPhone because it was a fancy dress-themed party."

There was no one near at the tim well if you actually look at the girl next to the "ghost" she is dressed in a 1950s cocktail dress, example the hat with feather. Reading seems to not be your only weakness.

the dude smiling in the picture is creepier than the ghost.

Is that not the woman's hands?? Looks like she is moving her right arm up, with her left hand grabbing her right wrist. Looks like a black bracelet too for the eyes, does look creepy though!!

That guy is an eye-sore, it's hard to concentrate on the ghost at "hand"... Who's hands?? Andre the giant? They are certainly not anyone's hands in the pic. Could be a mask..... Or a fresh idea!! Mabyee... It's really A ghost!!!

What a freaking colourful pub! I don't know about the apparent 'ghost' pic, looks pretty much like a photoshop. Never seen a 'legitimate' looking spirit picture in that form anyhow.

Free exorcism (or a bartender's lament), "It's time Gentlemen please, It's time we were no longer here. It's time Gentlemen please, It's time to drink up your beer..." "DON'T YOU HAVE A SECOND HOME TO GO TO?!"
