'Witch' spotted in the flames at Carshalton bonfire

This Is Local London: Can you see the witch rising froom the flames? Can you see the witch rising froom the flames?

Can you see the spooky image rising from the flames in this picture of the bonfire at Carshalton Park last week?

Carshalton couple Barry and Carmen Sollieux say they were shocked when they looked at a picture they took of the bonfire at the display on Saturday, November 3, and saw the flames taking the shape of a witches face.

Mrs Sollieux, 50, of Brooklyn Close, said: "We looked at the picture and it was in the shape of a witch. We videoed the display and then my husband's camera ran out of space so he started to snap pictures. When they lit the bonfire it whooshed up and he took some pictures.

"When we looked at the picture it was unbelievable - it made a bit spooked to be honest. I saw it immediately. It's got a pointy chin, the nose and then the hair at the back is the hat."

Judging by the above comments, I'm glad I'm not the only one who can only see flames and smoke!
I'll have a glass of what they were drinking!
