    A mother in England was astounded when she looked at some footage of her son learning to ride his bike and saw what she believes to be the ghost of an old woman watching over the boy. The weird scene was filmed by Louise Lenton and took place in the town of Paignton at a parking lot outside of a disused 19th century building known as the Oldway Mansion. The mom told a local newspaper that they picked the area because it was particularly flat and, thus, a good place for the youngster to practice riding.

    Lenton hadn't thought much of the moment until she later got home and watched the video she had taken earlier in the day. It is at that point that she spotted something strange in the window of the mansion and, upon closer inspection, saw what appears to be an elderly woman wearing Victorian-era clothes. She subsequently showed it to her partner and neither one of them could explain the presence of the out-of-place observer in the video.

    When she later contacted officials in charge of maintaining the historic building, Lenton received yet another surprise. According to her, she was told that the only people who would have been in the mansion at the time were security guards. "It's certainly not a security guard from what I can tell," she declared, noting that the eerie woman seems to clearly be wearing clothes from a different era.

    Skeptics will no doubt say that the 'apparition' is not quite detailed enough to firmly conclude what kind of clothes it is wearing. And, therefore, the best answer for the identity of the 'ghost' is that it really is just a security guard that was possibly drawn to the window by whatever noise the two may have been making outside. But unless someone comes forward to identify themselves as the mysterious potential spirit, we'll likely never know for sure. What's your take on the video?

    Well it definitely looks like a person. I couldn’t tell if it was a man or a woman nor the period of the cloths. Could have been a man wearing a vest. It could be a ghost or not...

    Yes, Lynne, it is hard to tell. I’m thinking in the extreme condition it could have been a specter in a corset or a ghost in a caftan. :ghost:

    Did anyone call to confirm nobody was in there? You could see the person in the window clear as day

    And the answer is:

    According an area newspaper, the 'apparition' in question is a security guard named Alex Warren, who explained that he'd been simply been watching Lenton's son riding his bike that afternoon.
