Is this spooky face haunting car parks around the borough?

The picture caught on camera by Colin Pantling, seems to show a face peering from the Times Square multi-storey car park.

The spectral image appears to have captured the attention of the man on the motorbike.

Mr Pantling said: "I was out with my camera looking for roosting birds in the trees and to my surprise I found this ghostly image staring across the road, does anyone know who it might be?"

It is not the first time a multi-storey car park in Sutton has witnessed a strange occurrence over the past couple of years.

IThere was the mystery of the moving car in the Brighton Road car park in August, 2010, after a women returned froma shopping trip, only to find her car parked in a different spot to where she had left it.

Convinced her car had moved “of its own accord”, the woman rang the council to ask if the car park was haunted, believing she had been the victim of a poltergeist.

CCTV footage showed the car apparently rolling forward unaided.

Councillor Simon Wales, Communities and Transport spokesman at Sutton Council, said: "This isn't the first time we've heard reports of spooky goings on in this area.

"I'm afraid that fans of the supernatural will be disappointed though - our staff checked CCTV footage of the area, which showed her car gently rolling into a different bay, after she forgot to apply her handbrake."
