'Ghost of old butcher' caught on camera 'walking' in room as orbs seen flashing in CCTV
Charlie Eggenton was told there was a butcher shop in the building a long time ago – and she is convinced that an eerie shadow she saw was a ghost "in Victorian clothing"
A woman was spooked after receiving alerts from her home security system to find an eerie "ghost of an old butcher" appeared in her flat.
Charlie Eggenton, who runs the C B Beautiful Group clinic in Rushall, West Midlands, said she had an intuition of something supernatural happening around her flat.
Her first "paranormal" encounter happened a few weeks ago when she was in the kitchen and claimed to see a ghost standing by a frying pan.
Since then she installed a motion sensor security camera to pick up any movement whenever she's not at home.
Last week Charlie was out on a boat trip and she received an alert from the app.
Footage shared on her Facebook shows some tiny "orbs" moving around the room and floating towards the TV stand.
The mysterious fluff-like objects appear from near the wall and start descending down across the room.
Charlie later captured a screenshot of a shadow that she described as a "boy in Victorian clothing".
She told Birmingham Live: "All of a sudden it started coming on. At first I thought it was the house sitter as I was paying a girl to feed the cat but I checked and she had already been.
"I could just see these orbs. I put it on Facebook as a joke and then people started zooming in and saying 'there's a face'.
"I've been told it's a butcher, half of the building used to be a butchers and slaughterhouse while the other half was a greengrocers.
"I said to my husband that it'd just be a fly or something as nothing had happened in the bedroom – I'd shut the door as I've got my case packed for my cruise and didn't want the cat to sit on my clothes.
"As I said it, the camera was set off in the bedroom, there's no way anything at all could have got in there."
Her friends were also convinced that they saw a ghost in the CCTV.
One commented: "Looks like a person about to bend down and take a seat. Spooky."
Another wrote: "He looks like a butcher with his arms behind his back, head turned looking."
Some struggled to spot any movement on camera, a viewer said: "I looked so many times since you posted it. Just looks like a shadow."
"I can't see anything!" a second agreed.
