Hampton Court Ghost

07 October 2003.
Hampton Court Palace is well known for alleged ghostly
activity, so much so that one area of the palace has been named the Haunted
Gallery - supposedly haunted by a screaming Catherine Howard, fifth wife of King
Never before has any of this activity been captured on film, however, in October 2003 something very spooky was caught on the palace's CCTV footage.
On several occasions palace security guards were alerted to an open Fire Door in an exhibition area of the palace. After securing the door each time, they returned to their office to view the CCTV footage to see who had opened them. On the first occasion the footage showed the doors flying wide open, but no evidence of why they had. On the second occasion they were stunned when a ghostly figure in period dress suddenly appeared on the screen and closed the doors. The same thing happened on a third day, but again no figure appeared.
