Staff and customers at a Bradford pub have been left mystified by a series of bright lights captured on CCTV.
Security cameras at the Dog & Gun, St Enoch's Road, Wibsey, have recorded bizarre white lights, dubbed 'bright disks'.
The mysterious lights have been seen almost nightly over the last three weeks, mainly in the pub's cellar and bar area.
Staff are at a loss to work out what is causing the strange after-hours light shows, which have also been spotted on cameras in the snug and near the gentleman's toilets.
Speculation in the pub is rife with everything from orbs, aliens and ghosts discussed as possible reasons.
Orbs are unexpected, typically circular phenomena which occur in flash photography - sometimes with trails indicating motion, which are especially common with modern compact and ultra-compact digital cameras.
The lights have also been spotted on footage taken during the day but staff say they mostly occur at night.
Landlord Barry Gallagher, who played for Bradford City between 1977 and 1983, says he has no idea what is causing the problems but says it has proved to be a talking point in the bar.
He said: "It's weird and unbelievable. I don't understand it. I would love someone to come into the pub who is scientific to explain it to me.
"We heard when we moved into the pub that it was haunted in the past. It's only by chance that we got to see this.
"People are saying that they are orbs and quite a big one is seen going across. Lights are flashing here, there and everywhere.
"I've heard about these stories before. It is worth seeing the footage. This is always in the dark when everyone is asleep.
"It goes on for quite a while at a time, more than a few minutes.
"It's the talk of the pub. We are getting quite a few people in asking about it. Something is going on but I'm not sure what. It's like a light show."
Bar manager Sharon Burton discovered the bizarre footage in the early hours of Monday, January 26 and says it has been recorded most nights since.
She said: "It's just strange. Everyone is sceptical. I can't explain it.
"I've got it recorded on my phone and have shown a few people at the pub.
"It does not feel frightening in the pub.
"These lights, or orbs, flash across the floor and in the bar. When I first saw it I thought 'what was that?' The lights seem to be more frequent when I lock up at night. They go on in the early hours of the morning as well. link
