Does this chilling photo provide proof of the supernatural?
The photo, which appears to show a ghostly figure lurking in the background, was taken by holidaymaker Mariehanna Dickson during a trip to Warwick Castle.
She took the photo in the castle’s Kenilworth Room, where the ghost of a small girl is said to lurk, despite being totally alone as the photo was taken.
She said: ‘I was all alone in the room because it was early and there weren’t many visitors around. I am South African and the plaque had some information about a South African spiritualist raising a young girl from the dead in the room.
‘When I got home I was reading the plaque on my camera and noticed a strange figure in the reflection of the shot.
‘At first I thought it must have been one of the wax work figures in the castle but when I called them they said there no models in that room.
‘I was so intrigued I called them to ask if anyone else could have been in the room without my knowledge but they said they checked the CCTV and it showed me taking the picture in a completely empty room.’

‘I don’t have any idea who the figure may have been and friends have tried to recreate it so it is unexplained.’
It’s a spine-chilling photograph, but a paranormal investigation is set to take place at the castle in October, so we can only hope that it will shed a bit more light on the whole thing.
