|An interesting letter appeared in the Liverpool Daily Post this week claiming that several passengers on arriving at Liverpool on board QUEEN MARY 2 on October 20 saw a large ghostly statue on the Liverpool waterfront near the Beetham Tower.|
The writer claimed that the statue was of a long haired woman and was around 200 feet high and was wondering if anyone on the Birkenhead waterfront photographing the arrival of QM2 had seen the phenomenon as they claim it must have been visible from there.
The writer also wondered if the Merseyside author Tom Slemmen, who writes on paranormal activities on Merseyside would comment on the what was seen.
Mr. Slemmen did replied to the letter in the Friday November 20 edition of the Daily Post. He claimed what the passengers saw could be a "time slip" from the future, showing a structure which will eventually appear on the waterfront in years to come.
He further speculated that rather than being a "long haired woman" it was likely to be a statue of John Lennon which may be erected Statue of Liberty style near the Liverpool waterfront!
All sounds like a load of hocus pokus - but of course if you were down on the Wirral waterfront that day photographing the ship's arrival - might be worth carefully checking your photographs!
