Mystery face at Canterbury christening 'looks just like my late husband'
The ghostly figure,
circled, in the photograph taken during the christening
by Gerry Warren
When Jamie Sewell posted a photo of his niece's christening on
Facebook he hadn't expected to see an extra "guest" gathered around
But this eerie figure made an appearance in a picture he
took on his mobile phone during the ceremony at St Martin's Church,
The black and white face looms over baby Mia-Bella Kennett and
her family – but was only spotted when it was posted on the social
Local DJ Jamie, 29, uploaded the picture
from the church, but the ghostly apparition doesn't appear in any
other photos taken on the day.
The spooky face has shocked members of Mia-Bella's family,
including her grandmother Heather Sewell.
Heather, pictured left, believes it bears a strong
likeness to her late husband Terry Sewell, who committed suicide 17
The taxi driver, from Petham, said: "I was so shocked when I saw
it, as we all were. It looks very much like Terry.
"I know there has been no photo trickery so it is all very
spooky and perhaps not what you want to see at a christening.
"I was in the pub afterwards when I first saw the Facebook page
and everyone was stunned because it's so clear."
St Martin's, in North Holmes Road, is the oldest church still in
use for religious services in the country.
But Chris Robinson, who has been a member of the parochial
church council for 20 years, said he had never heard of any
previous ghostly sightings.
