Going through the Wasthill canal tunnel: The closer I got, the uneasier I felt - it began to take shape.
Any road up, the shape was misty, but definitely a person - all white, well grey, but you know what I mean.
She (I could see it was a she) was dressed in a flowing dress, the type you see in old boatee photos, except this dress was prettier and grander than those.
Well, I was about 100ft away and started to reach for the reverse lever when she faded into the darkness.
I am not ashamed to say that by this time I was crying like a baby.
I carried on at rather more revs than one should use in a tunnel and emerged from the other end, as my friends described, like a bat out of hell.
I was white as a sheet and so badly shaken that I couldn't steer anymore, and had to go and lie down.
