But when the officers arrived at the premises it turned out the shadowy 'suspect' was a something a bit spookier. Michael Bristow, 50, dialled 999 after he noticed a sinister dark figure sneaking around his coffee shop on his live camera feed. Four officers armed with Tasers rushed to Larders Coffee House in Louth, Lincolnshire, at 10.30pm on June 24, but there was no burglar and no sign of a break-in. After examining the eerie CCTV footage again, Mr Bristow is convinced his coffee shop must be haunted. Police were called to Larders Coffee House in Louth after what may be a ghost was confused for an intruder on cctvShadowy suspect: Cafe owner spots a suspicious figure moving around on CCTV Mr Bristow, who has three grown-up children and one grandson, said: "The CCTV infrared sensors detected movement so something strange is going on. "I've looked at it several times on a larger screen and there are dark figures in the room and strange movements. "It appears to show an average height figure wearing a T-shirt walking out of shot and a ripple appears on the camera. "When police arrived they found no burglar and no sign of a forced entry. Nothing was stolen and nothing was disturbed, the police told me it must have been a ghost. "Some of the girls who work here have noticed strange goings-on before. "The local ghost walk does come past the coffee shop and stop outside. I think customers don't want to come in after that. "It is a very old building, one of the oldest in the town. It is a converted warehouse and still has some of its old features like the old winch inside."

She said: "One of our regular customers took part in a ghost walk in town and the guy from the ghost walk stopped out here as well. "I think Michael used to just think there was always another explanation for these things, but now I think he believes it - even if he might not admit it." And Sarah Clapson, 29, has worked at the cafe for two years. She said: "There was a time when Ceejay was upstairs sorting an afternoon tea out and I was busy downstairs, but then I saw a light on my radio - me and my colleagues heard a little girl's voice. "I thought it must have been Ceejay so I radioed back to see what she wanted, but she said she'd never radioed me - it creeped us out. "A few years ago, Michael's son was staying here one night and saw a little girl on the landing. "I often sense things, especially upstairs or on the landing where the kitchen is." baristow.co.ukPolice were called to Larders Coffee House in Louth after what may be a ghost was confused for an intruder on cctvFalse alarm: When police arrived at the cafe there was no sign of an intruder A spokeswoman for Lincolnshire Police said: "The owner of the coffee shop reported seeing a blur on the CCTV.
