‘Ghost’ captured on camera at 300-year-old pub

White Swan Inn in Dunstable, Bedfordshire has had more than its fair share of paranormal activity in the past week, after an alleged encounter with a ghost was captured on a security camera.

A bottle of beer was captured on camera shooting off a shelf behind the bar onto the floor, with no member of staff nearby.

It created a mess behind the till, while the rest of the bottles on the sturdily screwed shelf stood perfectly still.

Pub manager Tasha Magnan told the Metro: ‘The bar staff were so spooked out after. They felt the chills of the aftermath of our beer-destroying ghost.

‘We now have two pieces of CCTV showing what we feel are ghosts. We have no idea who the ghost is – someone who doesn’t like beer.’

Drinkers in the 300-year-old pub were spooked back in February this year after a drink slipped off their table, despite being left untouched.

The full pint went crashing to the floor, leading the pub manager to blame the group for making a mess.

But the group of men were adamant they had not touched the glass, leaving both punters and staff perplexed.

The paranormal moment of the alleged ghost was captured on camera, proving the group of drinkers were telling the truth.

Magnan has worked at the White Swan Inn for over 20 years and claims there have been a number of unexplainable incidents.
