On this day in 1956

15th January 1956 - Covent Garden Tube Ghost Spotted

It was reported in the Sunday Dispatch that a ghost was seen in Covent Garden London Underground Station.

"Is the statuesque figure wearing white gloves and seen by members of the station staff, the spectre of William Terriss, the actor stabbed to death at the Adelphi Theatre by a maniac 59 years ago?

One member of staff, Station Man Victor Locker, a West African, who believes he saw a ghost, cannot bear to work at the station. His application for a transfer to another station was granted immediately.
"

Personally, I don't know how anyone can bear to work at Covent Garden station, ghost or no ghost. For more on
