Experts have been commissioned by Liverpool City Council to investigate CCTV footage which seems to show a glowing white figure prowling the grounds of Croxteth Hall.
Another theory is that the ghost may be the 2nd Earl of Sefton, William Philip Molyneux, who was instrumental in the foundation of the famous Aintree Racecourse. Locals believe that the 2nd Earl of Sefton re-visits the Hall every year when the horses race in the Grand National. The timing of this ghost footage and the Grand National this year does, in fact, fit.
Ghost hunting expert and Most Haunted presenter Jason Karl is among those Liverpool City Council have invited to inspect the CCTV.
Karl told the Telegraph that, “Video footage of phantoms is very rare, and if this stands up to scrutiny it could be a very important piece of spectral evidence for the worldwide community of paranormal enthusiasts.”
