Ian Wilson, Managing Director of CompareNI.com said: “Most of us are familiar with traditional ghost stories and may feel uneasy when driving past an old church or a cemetery at this time of year.
“However, few will be quite as aware of what unearthly terrors lie in wait for them when driving around the UK.
“With Halloween fast approaching, we’ve researched the 10 most supernatural roads and revealed what apparitions drivers might find – so anyone prone to a scare should give these spooky streets a miss.
“On the other hand, these spooky roads could represent an opportunity for would-be ghost hunters to go on a phantom-filled road trip this Halloween, just be safe and remember to leave your dashcam switch on!”
Their research revealed that the most haunted road in the UK was Upper Malone Road in Belfast.
Many have reported having witnessed a shadowy figure of a woman holding a baby at the entrance to Lady Dixon Park – all for her to disappear the moment they stop the car.
They said: “At the entrance to Lady Dixon Park, there have been many reports of a woman holding a baby jumping out in front of cars but when the drivers stop and get out there is no one to be seen.
“Legend has it that the woman drowned herself and her baby in the nearby lake and now haunts the park entrance still carrying her baby in her arms.”
