There's been multiple sightings of a highwayman in Hampstead and a ghost bride in Kent, according to Quotezone.

Seeing a ghost when driving in the dark on a deserted road is unsettling enough, but there's been werewolves too.

So enough spooking, here are 10 places you might want to avoid this Halloween.

Mother and baby – Old Malone Road, County Antrim

At the entrance to Lady Dixon Park there have reports of a woman holding a baby jumping out in front of cars.

But when the drivers stop and get out there is no one to be seen.

It is believed the woman drowned herself and her baby in a nearby lake and now haunts the park entrance.

Werewolves – East Riding of Yorkshire

Between Driffield and Staxton Hill, a hairy creature once tried to smash his way through a man's windscreen.

In the 1960s, author Charles Christian described how a lorry driver was left terrified when they saw the thing.

Then in August 2016, a woman described seeing a monster which looked "like a big dog" in the village of Halsham.

The ghost bride – Blue Bell Hill, Kent

There have been countless reported sightings of ghostly figures in the road among Blue Bell Hill.

Judith Langham was a young bride-to-be killed in a car collision on the day of her wedding in 1956 at the age of 22.

Now according to reports, she haunts the road wearing a white dress and startles drivers who believe they've hit her.

Huge hairy hands – Nine Mile Hill, Devon

After an accident in the 1920s involving a bike, a coach mounted the bank by swerving and hurting a woman.

The driver told of feeling hands turning the wheel towards the verge, but nobody listened to him.

Later the same year an army officer was riding a motorbike and was thrown to the verge in exactly the same place.

He survived to tell bewildered onlookers that he had felt huge hairy hands over his own on the handlebars.

Ghostly children – Stockbridge Bypass, Sheffield

In 1988, it was reported two security guards witnessed young children playing in the middle of the construction site.

As they got closer, the children began to disappear with no footprint evidence left in the trail behind them.

Roman soldiers – M6 motorway

There have been multiple reports of motorists witnessing Roman soldiers marching across the road.

Parts of the M6 run along an old Roman road would have been used by soldiers during the Roman invasion of Britain.

The highwayman – B519 by The Spaniards Inn, Hampstead

A turn in the B519 just before The Spaniards Inn in Hampstead is said to be haunted by an 18th-century highwayman.

The ghost's dad allegedly owned the pub for a time, and his ghoulish son still paces the road looking to target drivers.

The Executed Monk – A666, "The Devil's Highway", Bolton

Known simply as the A666 ghost, dashcam footage from 2015 revealed a white creature appearing out of nowhere.

The video shows the figure slowly approaching a terrified driver while the passenger cries for help.

Locals have speculated that the figure could be that of a monk who was executed in a nearby tower in 1643.

The Ghost Train – The Old Tay Bridge, Dundee

A violent storm during the winter of 1879 caused the Old Tay Bridge to collapse while a train was passing over it.

The train plummeted into the ice-cold waters of the Tay and all 75 passengers on board were tragically killed.

It is thought, a phantom train can be seen crossing the old bridge and locals hear the screaming cries of the victims.

Phantom Miners – Platt Lane, Lancashire

Many motorists have reported seeing spooky eyes peering out of the hedges by the roadside.

This road in Westhoughton runs close to the site of the 1910 Pretoria pit tragedy which killed 344 miners.

Unfortunately, supernatural incidents aren't normally covered by car insurance.

But some do cover "An Act of God", deemed an event that is not the fault of any individual.

If loss occurs from an event covered, then the insurer will pay out, in accordance with the policy terms and conditions.

Greg Wilson, founder of Quotezone.co.uk, said: "Most of us are familiar with traditional ghost stories and will feel that tingle down our spine when in an old church or cemetery.

"But few will be quite as aware what unearthly terrors lie in wait for them when driving around the UK in the apparent safety of their own vehicles.

"So with Halloween fast approaching we've researched the 10 most supernatural UK roads and revealed what apparitions drivers might find – so if you're prone to a scare, I'd give these spooky streets a wide berth.

"For the bravest believers these roads will represent an opportunity to go on a phantom-filled road trip while even the most sceptical motorist will find these stories chilling to read – either way, it would be sensible to leave your dashcam switched on this Halloween!"
