Ghost hunters say they’ve caught ‘notorious spectre’ at old RAF base on camera

A group of ghost hunters has claimed to have caught a legendary ghost on camera for the first time at an RAF base in Lincolnshire.

The Retford Ghost Hunters say they were rocked by an eerie presence, who was holding a cigarette at the defunct RAF Metheringham base, which is rumoured to be home to Catherine Bystock.

Catherine, also known as the Metheringham Lass, appears on the strip of the road as she supposedly waves motorists down to help her boyfriend who crashed his motorcycle.

The paranormal team said they caught the 19-year-old ghost while they were live streaming and said she even appeared in front of their car.

According to local legends, Catherine has been haunting the road ever since she and her boyfriend tragically died in an accident in 1945, reports Lincolnshire Live.

It has been reported that if you stop to offer her help, she slowly approaches the car before quickly vanishing, leaving behind only the smell of lavender.

Rachel Parsons, managing director at the ghost hunters, said the team travels all over, but there was something special about this sighting.

She said: "We get pictures of ghosts a lot and they're great, but this is just 'wow'.

"It was right in front of the car."

The team had already heard of the airfield, so they decided to go and see it for themselves.

Late at night, they pulled up in their car and placed some motion-sensitive lights around that would detect movement.

Rachel said: "We did the hunt from the car because it was absolutely freezing.

"I wound down the window and said, 'if you're here Catherine, show yourself'.

"All of a sudden, there was a massive thump on the car and the flashing lights went off.

"Not just one person but seven or eight people sent us a screenshot from the video.

"As the flashing lights were going off, she was stood right in front of the car.

"It was amazing – it even looks like she's holding a cigarette."
