Ghost suspected of being behind suspicious activities in pub
The owner of a pub in Sydney, Australia is suspecting a thirsty ghost may be responsible for some suspicious activities that have been caught by the hotel's security cameras in recent weeks.
Lights flickering and glasses and bottles falling to the ground without anyone near them have sent shivers through the staff and patrons of the Carlisle Castle Hotel in Newtown.
Twice on Thursday night, licensee Peter Bradbury saw suspicious behaviour. In one of the incidents, security footage shows a man walk past a rack mere moments before two bottles of red wine appear to jump off the shelves and smash on the ground despite no one touching them.

"Could this be that pesky ghost again?" Mr Bradbury posted on the pub's Facebook page. Another video appears to show staff and patrons jumping after glasses fall unexplainably to the ground and smash. The new videos follow a post from earlier in the month of a strange gust-like image "dancing" in front of a security camera in an area of the pub.
