Fright in shining armour: Dad-of-five is spooked after finding two ghostly figures in the background of one of his photos
A dad-of-five was left SPOOKED when he spotted two ghostly figures – which he believes are knights – in the back of a photo.
Richard Jones noticed the ghostly figures when he snapped his five-year-old niece Amy Jones at Tamworth Castle Grounds in Staffordshire.
Originally the 38-year-old didn’t notice anything strange about the photo as it was bright daylight.
However, once he got home, a baffled Richard spotted the celestial outlines in the trees behind his niece.
Richard said: “When I noticed the figure I was confused.
“I can’t quite make out what they are, but it looks to me like two figures.
“It could be two knights carrying a shield – which would make sense as it was by the castle.
“What’s so strange to me is that there is absolutely no colour – it’s all white.”
In the back of the picture it appears like there are two grey figures – possibly dressed in chainmail – carrying a white shield with one carrying a white shield.
Only about 20 yards to the right, another person in the park is walking by in a red top.
Richard, who is from Walsall, West Midlands, was out with niece Amy and two of his children, Miller, 6, and Ayla, 2.
Richard said: “We had been out for the day and were just passing through the castle grounds.
“It was a lovely bright warm day and the kids thought were playing with the ducks.
“It just seemed like a really nice picture and I didn’t see the figures out until a lot later on.”
Amy’s mum and Richard’s sister, 40-year-old Esther Jones was equally confused when she saw the picture of her daughter.
Esther said: “It’s all just so strange – I think it’s some sort of ghost myself.
“It looks like they were there one minute and then disappeared the next as they aren’t there in the other photos.
“”There must have been something special that day.
“I’ve been down there since and taken pictures but haven’t seen anything unusual.”
