The child, who is a cult internet sensation, is described as having coal-black pits for eye sockets and is identical to the reported sightings of her in the early 1980s.

Lee Brickley began his investgation after reports that the ghost had reappeared 30 years since she was reportedly last seen. A woman heard screams and came across the wandering, sightless spectre.

We instantly started running towards the noise, we couldn’t find the child anywhere and so stopped to catch our breath. That’s when I turned round and saw a girl stood behind me, no more than 10 years old, with her hands over her eyes. It was as if she was waiting for a birthday cake. I asked if she was OK and if she had been the one screaming. She put her arms down by her side and opened her eyes. That’s when I saw they were completely black, no iris, no white, nothing. I jumped back and grabbed my daughter. When I looked again, the child was gone. It was so strange.”
