Ghostly soldier figure appears in doorway of building in Looe
A SNAPSHOT of a building site in Cornwall revealed a lot more than expected - the ghostly figure of a soldier in uniform.
The figure of the soldier carrying a rifle can clearly be seen in the doorway at the former Belmont Apartments on Station Road in Looe.
Cornish Guardian reader Teresa Baker sent in the picture which was taken by her daughter’s partner.
She said: “The photo is taken in the doorway of what was the Belmont Apartments. My daughter’s partner was asked to take a photo as someone had broken into the site which is being renovated at the moment by Bond UK. There is clearly something in the background of the photo.”
It is known that the building was for many years a hotel and was used by First World War soldiers. Could this account for the ghostly apparition? Can anyone shed further light on the mystery figure?
