Ghostly woman appears in innocent video of child riding bike

Chilling footage has emerged of a mysterious woman watching over a child riding a bike.

On Sunday evening, mother Louise Lenton was filming her son ride a bike outside the historic Oldway Mansion in Paignton, a town in south west England, Devon Live reported. 

However she later noticed her son wasn't the only one present in the video. 

The footage shows what appears to be a woman in Victorian attire looking out across the carpark from a second-storey window.

Despite not being one to believe in paranormal activity Ms Lenton says she cannot explain the appearance of the woman. 

"It wasn't until I was home and in bed watching the film back when I noticed it," she told Devon Live. 

"I was like 'oh my gosh!' and my partner could not explain it. Neither of us know what this is." 

Ms Lenton approached Torbay Council who told her the only people who would have been present in the building were security guards.

"It's certainly not a security guard from what I can tell. The outfit the woman is wearing appears to have white cuffs and it looks Victorian."

"I would love to know who or what it was."
