Monday 28th, November 2022
Ghost hunters from Hunter Tours captured what they describe as a 'child's face' in a photograph taken on the ngiht they took a group into some underground tunnels at Fort Horsted, Rochester, Kent.

The group on the night of the investigation report to have only had torches on the night to light their way and that members of the group heard something move off down a dark alleyway.

The person to have taken the photograph was Colin Waterman.

Mr. Waterman told KentLive, "We did a ouija board, we were calling out to see if there were any spirits in the area and a little child came through on the board."

"They spell out the letters, we said are you a little boy and it went to yes, he said that he died there when he was a little boy."

Mr. Waterman went on to describe when he noticed the oddity in the photo he had taken after returning home, "I skipped past the photo and went hang on a minute, and I zoomed in, lightened it up and it came up as a little face. I've got a few in the past but nothing as clear as that."

"You get the little goose pimples to think I was actually standing there and that was looking down at us and we didn’t see it.

"I was straight onto the crew members they were like, 'oh my god, I can't believe it! What a great photo'."

Andrew Ayres, who has run the tour company for 20 years, was delighted at the picture.

Mr. Ayres said, "It's a really good one, we get stuff like this all the time but that's an exceptional one.

"It's the afterwards that you get the evidence, those photographs are reviewed later you've got the little boy on the ouija board, communicating and then you’ve got this of what’s quite clearly a little person."

"We run voice recorders during the experiment and people tend to put headphones on and review the recordings and you'd be amazed at what comes out, you get spirit voices saying 'it's me'."

Mr. Ayres company Hunter Tours which has 60 staff running 400 to 500 investigations per year said, "It's done on a serious level as it's a paranormal investigation, no one is jumping out of wardrobes or anything like that."

"We do get people who get freaked out but a lot of people are really into it. It's a strange sensation. People say they feel quite comforted by the stories that come out."

"We tell people we don't want them to be scared; we want them to be positive and open-minded. We want them to enjoy it. People enjoy being scared but that’s not what it's all about."

"We make the guests do the investigating bit. If someone's watching me then they’ve got to take my word for it. I could be making it up. That’s why we push for them to do it."
