Accidents along the M4 - could ghosts be to blame?

Welford - RAF Welford
Late twentieth century
The crew of a Lancaster bomber which crashed shortly after take-off have been observed crossing the old runway.

West Hendred - Road through the village
1964, and summer 2010, circa 23:30h
This phantom man darts in front of incoming traffic - the drivers brake or swerve, always believing it to be too late to avoid an accident, but the figure is gone. He was seen by two sisters in their car in 1964, three years after the event which had killed him, and may have been seen again in 2010 by a woman who swerved slight to miss a figure which ran out in front of her car.

Windsor - Windsor Castle
26 June (Charles) (reoccurring), other entities various
Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Charles I & George III have all reportedly been seen here after their natural lives ended. Elizabeth frequents the library, Charles the Canon's House (traditionally walking on the night of 26 June), while George haunts the rooms in which he was bound after being declared mad. Henry VIII can only be heard, moving slowly down the corridors, dragging his bad leg. The great park attached to the castle is home to Herne the Hunter, who together with his devil dogs, stalk the woodlands. In 1906 a guard was investigated after he fired five rounds at a white figure - he claimed the bullets passed straight through the figure. Finally (for the time being), the park is also haunted by the ghost of a Grenadier Guard who killed himself while on duty.
