A petrified patient who claims to have captured a "ghost" walking down the corridor of a hospital was bizarrely told it's the spirit of a man by a local medium.

The photographer, who did not want to be named, says she was "petrified" when she took the snap on the fourth floor of Royal Derby Hospital.

She then passed the image on to Burton medium Ian Griffiths, who thinks it is the spirit of a man – and reported several similar sightings in hospital hallways, Staffordshire Live reports.

Several lights illuminate the empty corridor and the image looks as though it was captured at night.

A long, dark shadow is on the left side of the image in the shape of a head and a body.

The photographer said: "When I came out of the lift and started walking up the hallway it just felt spooky and scary.

"The reason I took the picture was because I was going to put it in my family group chat and say, 'look how scary this looks and I'm here on my own at this time'.

"But then forgot all about taking the photo and I think I just happened to be looking at the photos on the Saturday and saw it."

She later said that on a second occasion she saw a man exiting a side door, pushing a wheelchair with an elderly woman in it.

She moved to one side to let them pass and say hello. She took the photo and thought she had included them – but nothing was on it.

Speaking about the photo, Mr Griffiths, who lives in Swadlincote, said: "I've had many photos and videos and cases of paranormal activity over the lockdown. There seems to be a lot of activity over the last few months.

"When I received this photo it stood out, I picked up a male spirit, a tall, thin male. He didn't feel very old.

"It is an amazing photo and good capture. Hospitals are very active locations.

"I remember investigating the old Derby Royal Infirmary years ago when it was closed and emptied.

"We had objects rolled back at us.

"We rolled a small ball on one of the old wards in the hospital, and as we were leaving the ward we felt something hit our feet. It was the ball.

"When we were on one of the old theatres we asked if anyone was there and to tap or do something. We heard a scalpel tapping on the steel sink that was in there."
