Can you spot the hand attached to nobody?

This picture of a group of girls at a linen factory in Belfast may look innocent, but it's hiding something creepy.

People have been left spooked by the snap ever since it started circulating on the Internet this week, but can you see why?

The picture is 120-years old and was taken in 1900 at a Northern Irish factory.

In the picture, the girls mostly have their arms crossed as they pose in four rows.

But can you see the ghostly extra hand which appears to be attached to no one?

We'll give you a clue, take a look at the woman on the right in the first row from the bottom.

If you look closely at her left shoulder, you can see a hand, but where has it come from?

This week, a Mumsnet user shared the picture on the forum, asking people what they made of it.

One person commented on it: "It's quite late where I am and I was about to go to sleep and saw this. I feel quite scared now."

Another wrote: "Thanks for that. Totally freaked out now. Will see this in my sleep."

As with anything that might prove the existence of the spirit world, people are incredibly sceptical, with some wondering if it has been edited.
