Pub landlord's unwelcome spirits
26th April 2006



Police were called to a pub toilet when a shocked licensee was left shaking by an encounter with a ghost with half a face.

Landlord Roger Froggatt and his wife Kathryn were woken by the alarm at the Low Valley Arms, near Barnsley, South Yorkshire in the early hours of the morning.

As he investigated what he thought might be an intruder he was confronted by a woman wearing a long white gown in the ladies lavatory of the pub in Darfield.

But what left 55-year-old Mr Froggatt in a state of complete shock was her face - half of which was missing.

Mrs Froggatt, 49, who was just behind her husband before he went into the toilets, said she was so concerned about what her husband had experienced she called the police.

"He was in total shock," she said. "He was shaking, he was white and he wouldn't move.

"He just kept saying 'face, face, it's horrible, it's horrible'.

"I was so worried about what he might have seen I rang the police there and then, sitting on the stairs."

But Mrs Froggatt said the bizarre goings on, which began when the couple first came downstairs to find all the televisions on in the bar, continued when the police arrived.

She said one officer went into the ladies and although the figure of the woman had gone, the toilets began to flush themselves.

Mrs Froggatt and a second officer went in and the flushing continued.

"The handles were going up and down and there was water everywhere," she said.

The landlady said she and her husband had moved into the pub a year ago and although there had been rumours of things moving around the cellar, nothing had been seen before.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman confirmed officers were called to the pub at 1.35am yesterday.

He said a search of the property revealed a small window was open but it was "far too small for any entry to be gained."

The spokesman also confirmed that the toilets in the ladies flushed themselves when the officers went in.
