A paranormal investigator was left with what he described as a 'paranormal hangover' after the incident.
Tony Ferguson and his wife had been investigating Fort Widley near Portsmouth, England - a reportedly haunted facility built 150 years ago - on October 16th when the encounter happened.
Designed to protect the city from attack, the structure saw use during both world wars before eventually being turned into an equestrian center in the 1990s.
It also serves as a popular destination for paranormal investigators.
Deep beneath the ground in the fort's old coal tunnels, Tony recalls calling out into the gloom in the hope of receiving a response: "Anyone need help? Are you lost? Are you trapped?"
To his surprise, someone or something did respond.
"In reply I repeatedly heard, 'Get out, leave!'," he said.
"I heard both a man's and a woman's voice. They really didn't want anybody there."
"Then, suddenly, at the end of the tunnel, I saw a mass of fog shooting down towards me. It lit up. I started to retreat, running back down the tunnel - managing somehow to turn around..."
"Then I felt a whooshing sound when the spirit went past and I could feel it go straight through me."
"Afterwards, I felt completely drained for the next few days. It was like a paranormal hangover."
Tony maintains that he has always been something of a "magnet" for ghosts, having had numerous paranormal experiences throughout his life. Even as a child, he recalls encountering a ghost in his grandmother's kitchen when he was only 3 years old.
"It used to happen often when I was left alone," he said. "My grandmother would go off and do something and the figure would appear."
"He would walk into the room and I would start crying as I was scared."
"He looked like someone from the 1900s and we reckon now it was my granddad's dad."
