A British council has called in local ghostbuster experts to review CCTV footage which appears to show a ghost on the grounds of a hall.

Liverpool City Council in the UK has called in experts to study the footage which appears to show a ghost in the grounds of Croxteth Hall.

Councillor Berni Turner, Liverpool city council's executive member for the environment, said she was keeping an open mind about the investigation.

"I'm a huge believer in the paranormal and think this footage is really interesting," she added. "It's great to think that we may have ghosts walking around these beautiful grounds."

City bosses have suggested that the site could be haunted by the 7th Earl of Sefton, Hugh William Osbert Molyneux, who lived at the hall until his death in 1972.

Another theory is that the ghost could be the 2nd Earl of Sefton, William Philip Molyneux, who laid the foundation stone for Aintree Racecourse and is believed locally to revisit the hall every year at the time of the Grand National.
