Is this a ghost sitting in front of a computer in an empty college classroom?

Eerie footage captured in an empty college classroom appears to show a GHOST sitting in front of a computer.

The video shows a semi-transparent is seen floating and sitting attentively in front of a screen at Stockton Riverside College in Thornaby-on-Tees, North Yorkshire.

Dozens of students and teachers at the college have queued up to catch a glimpse of the spectre after it was spotted by staff last week.

But don’t worry, there’s an explanation - although it’s complicated.

Paul Abley, a games design lecturer at the college, told the Gazette Live : “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.”

Paul, who has worked at the college for around two years, said the phenomena must have been happening since the college was built but was only noticed last week.

The computer suite, which is in the media and games department, is only in use for around two thirds of every day so is often empty and has its lights switched off - the best time to see the illusion.

And the video caused quite a stir on the college’s Facebook page, with one student saying: “I’d be gone if I saw that and never go back.”Does this video capture a ghost in an empty college classroom?
