The Ghost of Diamond Road *UPDATE*

The ghost of Diamond Road has been witnessed again! A grim spectre in a hooded cloak can be seen pointing menacingly at a postman. What does this mean? Has the postman been singled out? or does he have a parcel that won't fit through the new flat's letterbox?
As ever, please let me know your thoughts on this. But remember, try to sleep easy, theres bound to be an explanation.

The Ghost of Diamond Road

The original photo

I took this picture of the apartments being built near my house. I seem to have unwittingly photographed a ghost.

Theres no denying that the half built building has a sort of weird energy. Passers by have noticed a strange cold feeling as they walk past, and a feeling of being watched. But this photo is more than a vague feeling... is it evidence of a haunting? And if so can a ghost just move in? The flats aren't even finished yet.

See below for close ups of the photo. What do you think? Is it a trick of the light? Have you noticed anything strange around Diamond Road? Any weird noises or sudden temperature drops? If so please write in. I'm especially keen to hear any reports about the Ghost of Diamond Road.

Lunatic Hound of Duncan Down

It has recently been reported that a lunatic dog has been biting trees in the Duncan Down area of Whitstable. So far more than 20 trees have been gnawed by its evil fangs.

Is this a new beast prowling around the town? Or is it new evidence of the giant fox? Panther? or even the mysterious and terrible black dog?

As the summer approaches, can the town handle more strange beasts?

Here a photo of the gnawing by Chris Davey

As ever, if you have any information or photographs, or if you could do a drawing if you've survived an encounter, please send them in to me.

Similar to, but not greater than the giant frozen wave of Whitstable in 1940.
