Ghost fanatics were engulfed in tales of Romford’s spooky past as they were led around the town in aid of the Recorder’s Fundraise on the First campaign.

The Golden Lion pub, the cemetery of St Edward the Confessor church and the River Rom were just a few of the paranormal hot spots that were visited on the ghost walk last night, led by historian Brian Evans.

Those on the tour were spooked by stories of spirits watching people in the pub toilets, an image of a Roman soldier marching and the ghostly figure of a Victorian woman at Havering Museum while it was being refurbished in 2010.

More than £300 was raised for the charity First Step.
