Blair Witch 'Ghost' Terrorises Woodland Campers In Bristol (PICTURES)

Two friends who went camping in the woods together have vowed never to repeat the experience – after capturing this Blair Witch-style ghost on camera.

Lola Swan and Kate Channon set up camp in a dense woodland but soon noticed strange noises such as twigs snapping and their equipment going missing.

But they packed up and fled in terror after hearing a chilling child's voice at 1am.

It wasn't until the following morning when Swan, 28, flicked through their pictures of the night before that she noticed the spooky apparition among the trees.

"I immediately threw the phone to the ground," she said. "I knew we were being watched, and that picture proves it.

"During the night we heard the sounds of, what can be described as, people walking around.

"Twigs and branches were cracking and breaking, like footsteps on the forest ground."

Lola Swan and Kate Channon have vowed never to go camping again after their experience

Swan and Channon, 24, were camping at Leigh Woods on the outskirts of their home city of Bristol.

They set up during the day but as night fell they began hearing strange noises and felt like they were being watched.

At one point Channon whistled out - and was horrified when something whistled back.

Tensions rose when their hammer went missing and the child's voice at 1am was the final straw.

"After midnight it all got too scary and, in our panic and fear, packed up our tent and go the hell out of there," said Swan, who is unemployed and of Hartcliffe, Bristol.

Her picture shows what appears to be a white ghoul, or ghost, peering at them from behind a tree.
