'Ghostly figure' shows up in CCTV footage

A video showing a strange shadowy figure moving along a corridor has been uploaded on to the Internet.
The footage (below), which emerged on social media on Saturday, was taken by a CCTV camera which overlooks a rope bridge at the shipwreck-themed Dreamwater Lounge in Warrington.

In the video the camera can be seen shaking slightly before a wisp-like figure appears near the bottom of the frame and travels slowly up towards the left. Some Internet users claim that the anomalous form resembles a pirate while others think it looks like a woman in a bonnet.

While owner Simon Ellison maintains that the footage does show something unusual he also believes that someone had tampered with the recording before uploading it to make it seem more impressive.

"There is something there, moving along the rope bridge, but a lot of it has clearly been added," he said. "For one it is CCTV. It records all the time, not just because there is motion. Also it has a battery symbol in the corner and our CCTV runs from the mains."

It isn't clear who was responsible for editing the footage or what the anomaly itself could be.

"I am not sure what the moving figure is," said Ellison. "Everyone has different ideas. Some say it is a woman, I have even seen people say they think it is someone on a horse."

All I saw was cigarette smoke wafting up a stairway recorded by a security cam at a low framerate.

Good app.but the movement is not a target at a carnival game it keeps on a steady level like its floating not walking.!?

I enjoyed that and was glad I watched it before reading the comments but as Calibeliever say the owner admits the footage had been tampered with... But despite owner Simon Ellison admitted the bar is quite spooky, he said the leaked footage had been edited to make it even more dramatic. Simon, 44, who is originally from Manchester but now lives in Denmark, said: “There is something there, moving along the rope bridge, but a lot of it has clearly been added.” Simon said: “For one it is CCTV. It records all the time, not just because there is motion. Also it has a battery symbol in the corner an... [More]

From my home town this! Faked imo. Good publicity for the place though, I had never heard of it until this video came out but fancy going now, it does look a cool place.

Onwer said it was messed with. But still pretty good job. Hope the messer with uses this skill to make real money.

Fake, the depth perception is all sorts of messed up and the "ghost" walks in a straight line and slowly shrinks. Most things shrink as they get further away.

They don't shrink... they look smaller when they are further away. Watching something move further away doesn't look the same as watching something shrink. I think more damning towards the reliability of the video is the fact that the figure doesn't appear to be affected by the camera shake

Ok, so it was admitted to be faked or fudged up a bit. Oh well. I was going to go on and post for myself to say, that it could have been faked or some form of smoke pushed by wind and it looks familiar to a 'ghost', but I would believe it in some sense. That would be me. I agree with some that it is creepy to watch, faked or not. (I kind of like that creepy feeling, so it's all good)
