Flat Holm is Haunted by Ghosts

The isle of Flat Holm in the Bristol Channel has been believed to be haunted for the better part of a century. The island was once home to a sanitarium for Cholera patients. This alone would be enough to cloud the island in ghosts. However the island has also been home to a Mission and a World War II era artillery barracks.

Such history would usually open up way for people sighting specters and spooks. However there has been sightings of ghost cars.

The islands of Flat Holm and Steep Holm have only a few dozen people living on them. There are only four vehicles registered to be on the island. A Ford Angelina, a Vauxhall Vectra, a Black Cab, and a Mini Cooper. However there have been reports lately of high performance sports cars, such as a 1967 Ford Mustang, a 2006 Chevrolet Corvette, an Aston Martin DB3 and a TVR Vixen 1300. Only a handful of these models of cars can be found in Wales.

Officials report that the cars have not been on the island and that tourists have been imagining things. However Mr Brian Radcliffe disagrees after taking a photo with his smart phone of what is clearly Porsche 911 Carrera S Coupe. The phantom car appears to be going past the helipad on Flat Holm island with Cardiff in the background. Skeptics claim the photo as a fake.

Could the ghosts of Flat Holm really be driving around in high end cars? or is it an elaborate and expensive hoax? The Skeptic will keep you informed.
