A prisoner has claimed to have seen the ghostly Beast of Parkhust Prison (now called HMP Isle of Wight). Lags say an “evil presence” lurks there. One, calling himself Joe King [sic], told the prison newspaper Inside Time: “One night, I looked out and saw a creature on the roof. It looked half man and half bat. It was eating pigeons. I’m still in shock.” Sun, 11 June 2017.
