A woman claimed to have spotted her husband in an Indian restaurant’s promotional video — even though she died in 2014.
Spice Cottage, in the village of Westbourne, West Sussex, has been flooded with social media comments on the footage, which it said was filmed earlier this month.
Diners can be seen tucking into meals as waiters attend to customers in the clip, which ends with a round of applause for the staff.
It was posted to the restaurant’s Facebook page, where Lucy Watson commented: ‘How old is the footage? My late husband and his son are on the first shot and he died in 2014??’
A reply from the restaurant, which is near the market town of Chichester, said: ‘Hi Lucy, sorry to hear this. This footage was recorded last week.’
