Ghost hunters were called to Quantock Hills, in Somerset, over reports an angry spook had been shouting and swearing at tourists
Locals are claiming a potty-mouthed ghoul appearing as a “woman in white” has been telling people at a popular beauty spot to “f*** off”.
Ghost hunters were called to Quantock Hills, in Somerset, over reports an angry spook had been shouting and swearing at tourists.
The rude apparition is said to haunt an area known as Dead Woman’s Ditch at Over Stowey, Somerset Live reported.
The site on the Quantock Hills was named after the murder of Jane Walford, by her husband John in 1789.
Couple Christine and Dave Thomas, who are avid ghost hunters, launched an investigation into the paranormal being back in 2020.
Christine claims she was shouted at and told to “f*** off” by the ”nasty, evil spirits”.
She says she and her husband Dave picked up on a voice before being rudely told to leave.
The pair claim to have had other encounters there – with the ghost of a murderer from 1798.
“There is definitely something there,” Dave said.
“My wife has experienced it for a long time.
“There are two types of voices.
“There’s the residual memories being replayed which people pick up on without being able to communicate with.

“Then there are voices you can interact with, which you can have an exchange with, which can answer questions.
“Not all, but some can be quite nasty, evil spirits. Not everybody is aware of ghosts.
”That’s because some people have weaker barriers than others and are more likely to come across one.”
Other locals have also reported having seen a ghost there.
One said: “When I was about 17 on my way home from work, driving along a cold road, I saw a bright white figure on the side of the road so I slowed down.
”It appeared to be a woman completely dressed in white, old-fashioned clothing.
”I couldn’t take my eyes off as I drove past. I couldn’t bring myself to turn around to have another look. I just drove home in complete shock.”
Another said: “I’ve seen what looks like a tall figure with a long dark coat on outside the pub, on the edge of the road. Checked back and no-one there.”
Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and Nick Ferrari were in stitches when they discussed the ghost on an episode of This Morning in 2020.
After Holly introduced the segment while saying “please excuse me”, Phillip responded saying: “It’s someone hiding in the ditch, surely?”
Nick Ferrari, a host for radio station LBC, said: “It seems like something out of Midsomer Murders, doesn’t it?”
He joked saying it could be a woman who’s been struggling with their hair during lockdown, with Philip saying plenty of men will be fed up, too.
Nick said: “This particular woman is furious with her roots, that’s what I reckon.”
