‘Ghost’ of long-dead bishop caught on camera inside medieval cathedral

Is this a trick of the light or could this be the ghost of a medieval bishop lurking in the corner of Norwich Cathedral?

Sales worker Kerry Launders, 29, went to Norwich Cathedral with partner Simon Tobb, 30, and her children Millie, two, and Oscar, one.

She took lots of photos of the interior of the stunning 11th century building on her mobile phone camera.

But it was not until she got home that she saw the shadowy figure in one of the images, staring down from an upper floor.

The faceless form appears to be wearing long robes and a tall hat, and Kerry reckons it could be one of the dozen or so bishops buried in the cathedral.

Kerry from Bury, Greater Manchester, said: “It was my first time in a cathedral and it was really nice.

"I was just taking photos of the arch on my camera and that was that.

"There was nothing up there.

"But when I look back through my photos I saw something and had a proper look and I thought 'wow’ this is a good picture.

"I looks like a bishop - and there are a lot of those buried there - with the long clothing and the tall hat.

"I wasn’t scared when I saw it though because I believe in this sort of stuff.”

Kerry visited the cathedral in Norfolk last month on a day out with her family.

The Gothic grade-I listed building is a stop-off point on a number of ghost tours.

Builders working on surrounding building sites have reported objects moving on their own.

Visitors to the cathedral have also reported seeing ghostly figures in the Church of England cathedral.
