Did someone just manage to catch a ghost on video on the London Underground?

Did this apparition come from Angel? Or was it heading to Wooo-ting Broadway?

A mysterious ghostly figure lurking at Knightsbridge tube station has been captured on video by an unsuspecting member of the public.

The short clip focuses on the tracks and before moving round to look down the dark tunnel at the end of the station. A dim ghostly 'crouching figure' can then be seen just inside the mouth of the tunnel, leaning over the tracks before hiding behind the barriers.

Here's the initial scene:

We'll be honest - we're not overly convinced. But Knightsbridge would be a prime spot for a bit of ghost action - local legend suggests that the track between Knightsbridge and South Kensington's Piccadilly line station passes by a 17th Century burial pit for leprosy victims. Meanwhile, there have long been tales of ghost trains, with figures wearing a hat and coat riding on it, passing through South Kensington station.

It would also be the latest in a long line of reports of ghostly activity on the London Underground as a whole, with Aldgate, Liverpool Street, Bank and Elephant & Castle among those stations believed to be haunted. Head here for an extensive look at ghosts on the Tube.
