Ghost-hunters are investigating after walkers at a beauty spot reported the angry spirit of a dead woman telling people - to 'f off'.

The foul-mouth specter is apparently a 'woman in white' - who swears at people at Dead Woman's Ditch.

The site on the Quantock Hills in Somerset was named after the murder of Jane Walford by her husband John in 1789.

But now a foul-mouthed phantom is apparently lurking the area - with reports of a swearing apparition.

There were reports two years ago but now she is apparently back at her sharp-tongued worst.

A local ghostbusting team are now said to be looking into the area.

Locals had a mixed reaction to the situation today.

One posted: 'My kind of ghost 😂''

Dean Morgan added: ''All sounds a bit Scooby-Doo to me. It'll be a local uncovered by some pesky kids!😂😂''

Shelley Brereton said: ''Two women died here (or at least the body of a second one was found in 1988) so maybe she is the one haunting people 👻''

Andy Gardner said: ''Probably just a Bluetooth speaker hidden in the bushes.''

Matthew Longhurst wrote: ''Even the ghosts are going chav.''

Philip King said: ''Given the behavior of many visitors to the hills and the vast numbers, I can understand why she is ticked off.''

Valerie Moss: ''I wonder when the F-Bomb made it into current usage? Might help to date the ghost.''

Other locals have reported seeing a ghost there.

One said: ''"When I was about 17 on my way home from work, driving along a cold road, I saw a bright white figure on the side of the road so I slowed down.

''It appeared to be a woman completely dressed in white, old-fashioned clothing.

''I couldn’t take my eyes off as I drove past. I couldn’t bring myself to turn around to have another look. I just drove home in complete shock."

Another said: "I’ve seen what looks like a tall figure with a long dark coat on outside the pub, on the edge of the road. Checked back and no-one there."
