Young mother abandons home after seeing ghost in selfie

The mother-of-one was reduced to tears when she noticed a face lurking near her right shoulder after she zoomed in on the spectral snap.

Natasha Boden with 2-yr-old daughter, dolly, flee house after ghost photobombs her selfie

A young mother has been reported to have fled her home in terror after a 'ghost' photobombed her as she took a selfie, just weeks after undertakers claimed there was a dead body at the property.

Natasha Boden, 26, from Blackpool, Lancashire, took the picture on her mobile phone after newly dyeing her hair blonde.

Ms Boden immediately checked into a hotel for the night and is now looking for somewhere else to live with her partner, Mark Donohue and 2-year-old daughter, Dolly, ending the tenancy at the two-bedroom flat.

She said that just six weeks earlier, undertakers had knocked on her front door, claiming they were there to collect a corpse.

The undertakers soon realised they had gone to the wrong flat but Ms Boden said she couldn't return to the property knowing it might be haunted.

"My boyfriend is moving everything out of the flat. I can't go back there. I'm absolutely petrified.

"I've never believed in ghosts or anything like that. If someone else had taken the photograph, I would think it was a load of rubbish but the face is so clear.

"I'd just dyed my hair so I decided to take a quick selfie to see what it looked like - and as I flicked through the photographs, I realised there was the face of a man lurking near my right shoulder.

"I was terrified. I was alone in the flat and I knew I had to get out immediately. It was 11pm but I checked into a hotel and asked my boyfriend to meet me there. There was no way I would be able to sleep after what I had seen.

"The hotel room cost £60 for the night but it was worth it. I don't think I can ever go back to the flat, so I have called my landlord and handed my notice in to end the tenancy."
