Ruthin man appeals for info on ghost he saw in 1949

Back in 1949, David Thorp, an artist from Ruthin reports that he saw the ghost of a young girl on Upper Clwyd St in Ruthin, North Wales. She was dressed in a mauve coloured dress and her hair was blonde and in ringlets. He saw nothing too unusual at first, but then realised her footsteps were making no noise in the gravel beside the road.  The ghost is reported to be that of a girl that was crushed to death by a coach and horses at a nearby coaching inn. Mr Thorp is looking for more information about the girl he saw in Ruthin, and plans to paint a picture of her.

Is a hygrometer a useful ghost hunting tool?

I only ask this question because I am contemplating buying one to add to my armoury of spook-hunting tools. I already take readings with EMF meters for the electrical background readings. I feel if I could couple this with background temperature and humidity readings it might help identify patterns. Maybe it could help to predict when conditions are right for paranormal occurences. If the stone tapes theories are to be believed, there must be a "sweet spot" when these appearances happen most. If this can be tied in with accurate data then maybe - just maybe, a scientific pattern can be established.

Man takes picture of ghost in Guildford

Amateur photographer Mark Baker was sitting in his van on The Mount near Guildford. He was trying out his new camera and took a few snaps through the windscreen of his van at the misty landscape outside. When he downloaded the pics he saw the outline of what appears to be a human shaped glowing apparition. Maybe just a trick of light. What do you think? You can view the picture here:

Ghost of a child pulling a cart in Wales

A spectral child has been viewed pulling a cart along the A477 near Carew in West Wales. The person who saw the apparition is reported to have said
“I saw him running across the road very quickly and when I arrived at the point where he would have been.
There were just very thick gorse bushes and there is no way he could have disappeared into these. I arrived there in seconds. There was no sign of him.”You can read the report here:
