floatingThe chilling 15-second footage shows the apparition on the far side of a clothing rack float towards the camera, before turning and disappearing on Tuesday night.

Liam said: “Out of the corner of my eye I spotted – on channel 16 – something moving.

“I thought there must be someone in the building, you hear all these stories of people hiding in shops and breaking out at night.

“As I looked at it I saw this ghostly figure floating through the rails.

“I waited for it to come back a bit longer after that but I didn’t see anything else. I didn’t go and check.

“To be honest, I didn’t fancy it.

“I’ve always been quite sceptical with these sorts of things, but I’ve been trying to explain this and I can’t come up with an answer.”

  1. Hopkinson Ltd originally opened in the 1880s as a family-run industrial engineers merchants selling to factories, collieries and textile mills.

General manager Izzy Watts, 27, said: “I’m often in the building on my own if I stay late, so I’m a little worried.

“I’ve never felt unsafe before but the owner of the building always said something about the place never felt quite right.

“When I first saw it I said I wasn’t going to work.

“Liam had been working late on Tuesday night, staying back to re-wire the CCTV because we were doing a move-around.

“As he was re-wiring it, he was face-to-face with the screen and just saw it, rewound it and made sure he wasn’t seeing things before taking a video copy.

“When I saw it my stomach was going and I thought it was a joke. I am quite into the supernatural, so I’m convinced.
