    UK - Highgate, North London's 7-foot-tall, vampire-like ghost sighted again

    Because hot summers demand a ghostly chill.

    Highgate turning into a ghost town, says paranormal investigator (Haringey Independent)
    ---
    David Farrant [....] claims he was the first person to see a seven-foot-tall eerie spirit outside the gates of Highgate Cemetery in 1969 and “dozens and dozens” of sightings have been reported ever since.
    ---
    Mr Farrant is convinced the [North London Paranormal Investigator]’s sighting was of the very same mysterious figure because their experience was so similar to his own.
    ---
    “It was by some branches but as soon as I turned up I was aware of something standing there and it was exuding a feeling of not evil, but menace.”
    ---
    The vision also had two piercing bright white eyes, and although the media has widely described the ghoul as a vampire, he has never said this is the case - instead it simply had the quality of a vampire as it is so tall and enrobed in dark clothing.
    ---
    He said although many people expect ghosts to be transparent, the spirit was in fact deep black and solid.

    Just for you, Woofy, with apologies for the poor audio. There's more on Farrant's channel too.

    Thanks!

    Mr Farrant strikes me as rather a Mark E. Smith (the Fall) -like character, and in my book that's a good thing.
