Mount Everest.

Sunday People – 18th January 1976, a report ran to say a ghostly “third man” helped Dougal Haston and Doug Scott in the last stages of their climb. Dr Charles Clark the medical officer for the British team last September revealed that remarkable claim.

In the harsh conditions and thin air they felt a comforting presence at their side. They survived a horrific night just under the 29,002 summit with no food and problems with their oxygen supply.

Doug Scott, at home in Nottingham, explained a comforting presence to his left. The presence followed them into their snow-hole and Dougal was found to be speaking to someone.

22nd October 1978, the Sunday People ran a second report about Nick Estcart who claimed to have seen a figure 200 yards behind him, again on Everest. The figure vanished as he came to Camp Five where no one else could have been there.
