Aussie ghost caught smashing up bar

31st January, 2014 by Lauren Eads

A ghost with expensive taste in wine has apparently been caught on camera smashing up a bar in Australia.

According to a report by The Metro, Staff at the Carlisle Castle Hotel in Newtown, Sydney, have repeatedly reported unusual happenings in the hotel including taps turning on by themselves.

They decided to set up a CCTV camera to try and catch the culprit and were shocked to record a video of a “ghost” apparently flinging bottle of wine and glasses to the floor.

Peter Bradbury, the owner of the pub, told the Inner West Courier: “We have the cameras on when we’re doing the tills and we’ve seen a few strange things.

“It’s all very strange. I don’t know how long it’s been coming but it’s become quite a regular in the last few weeks. There’s been a few bottles of wine falling off the shelf.

‘Red wine seems to be the choice, apparently he likes the red. Expensive wine too, he picked a Kilikanoon last night, which is about $27 (£15) a bottle.”

Confused pub goers have since left comments on the hotel’s Facebook page in an attempt to explain the odd occurrences.

One said: “The first bottle to fall was on the edge so the vibrations of his footsteps would have caused it to fall, the second bottle, who knows.”

    Might have something to do with the person seen behind the counter at about the 10 second mark.
