Ghost hunters believe they have found proof that a 19th century spirit is haunting a castle in Ireland.

The sprit is said to be that of Walter Peter Lambert and footage claims to confirm that he spooks the Castle Ellen House.

Lambert was part of the wealthy family who owned the house and died back in 1892.

Richard Morrison, the co-founder of Paranormal Supernatural Investigations Ireland, said: ''On the day of his death, maids were cleaning his bedroom.

''One looked out of the window and said, 'The master has returned'. He was on foot, which was unusual as he travelled by coach.

''He had already been dead for some hours before this.''

Morrison also claimed that a horse and carriage carrying Lambert's remains refused to enter the castle and that a second team of horses also refused, hinting the ghostly presence of Lambert.
