A pub manager claims he has filmed the moment a ghost threw his mobile phone onto the floor from the seat where a late former landlord used to sit.
Manager Ajay Cohan, 30, spotted the incident at the New Talbot, in West Bromwich, West Midlands, when he checked the security tapes to see what happened to his iPhone.
Mr Cohan was baffled when his mobile phone vanished from inside the main room of the 100-year-old boozer while he was cleaning it in the early hours of the morning last Tuesday.
But when he checked CCTV cameras back footage showed his mobile mysteriously disappearing from the chair at 2.30am.
Regulars said the seat where the mobile phone was left was the favourite seat of former landlord Gary Stephens who died in 1993 from a heart attack.
Mr Cohan found his phone on the floor the following morning over the other side of the pub and believes the strange incident could be the work of Mr Stephens' poltergeist.
The latest occurrence is just one in a series of unexplained goings-on at his pub in recent weeks.
Other footage taken from the same cameras a few days later seems to show glowing orbs flitting across the room in the middle of the night.
And frightened staff have also reported feeling people touch them on their shoulder while working alone.
Father-of-one Mr Cohan said: 'It is really spooky, my family all live in the pub and we've been a little scared ever since.
'It was crazy when I watched back the footage, no-one was near it and then it just flies off the seat and across the pub.
'There is no explanation. The vibration function on my phone is broken, there is no draft inside the pub. It just looked like an invisible hand had grabbed it and thrown it across the room.
'The dog refuses to come downstairs now after the orbs started appearing, he goes mental so we have to keep him upstairs.
'It's really freaky, I'm a sceptic about these kinds of things but when you see things like that it makes you think twice, I'm trying to stay sceptical but that's hard.
'A few people have been saying it could have been his way of telling me that was his seat. The girl who works here who was touched by the ghost now won't work evening shifts.'
Phil Lambert, 45, a regular who has been using the pub for more than 20 years, said: 'There's always been rumours here that the place is haunted, its a very old place.
'I remember the old landlord Gary, when he had a drink with the punters or after work that would always be his seat. It is a very odd coincidence - that's for sure.'
