Petrified staff were briefed on the spooky goings-on in an email from bosses.

Senior manager Debbie Butler wrote: “I’m not sure how many of you are aware that some members of staff have reported seeing a ghost.

“I’m taking it seriously as the last thing I want is staff feeling uneasy at work.”

Ms Butler sent the message after workers at the new £334million Royal Derby Hospital claimed they had seen a cloaked figure dressed in black roaming wards and corridors.

I guess they’re between a rock and a hard place.Patients from the area are part of a culture more susceptible to believe ghost stories, and it won’t take long for these stories to spook the clientele into believing all sorts of things.

It is probably some part of Torchwood's (1918 Division) involving a British soldier and a time shift.
