Students of Stockson Riverside College in Thornaby-on-Tees in North Yorks have been left petrified after they reportedly spotted a ghost in one of their classrooms. The students spotted the ghost sitting in front of a computer in their computer room.
The moment was caught on camera to validate their claims. Ever since this happened, students have been streaming to the IT lab in order to see what the ghost looked like.
NAIJ.com gathered that the image of the ghost caught on camera showed it sat straight in front of the computer.
Lecturers of the institution however debunked the claims of the students by saying it might have been the reflection from the window of another class.
Paul Abley, a games design lecturer at the college aired his opinion about the incident.
“We’ve had some people come down and look at it, and they’ve been shocked.
“But simply, it’s a reflection in the window from another classroom.
“It’s improbable, but if a student is in the other classroom then the light must bounce off about four windows and the door of a server cabinet.
“All the angles are just right, and makes this semi-transparent reflection show up in the perfect place.
“It looks like a ghost and a fair few people have thought it was one, as you don’t immediately know where it could have come from.
“Quite a few people get freaked out by it. We’ve been having a bit of fun with it.
“It’s not as if it’s a direct reflection, the other classroom is separated from this one by a brick wall. If you’re stood looking at the reflection, you wouldn’t be able to see the student that’s being reflected.”
Abley, who has worked in the college for about two years, said the occurrence was only noticed recently even though the phenomena have been happening since the school was built.
The computer room of the college is located in the media and games department. The illusion is best seen when the lights are switched off.
