Phantom of the Bay found in Ulverston as Marton family wins £1,500
Last updated at 10:02, Tuesday, 04 March 2014
THE mysterious Phantom of the Bay returned to celebrate the Bay radio's 21st anniversary at the weekend - and was found in Ulverston.
After six months in hiding, the mysterious Phantom returned with a bounty on its head on Saturday and Sunday.
The Phantom was pursued across the Morecambe Bay area by thousands of intrepid and determined ‘Phantom Phanatics', all hoping to find the mysterious person and scoop a cash prize.
At one stage, many thought the Phantom had even taken to the skies when an airplane banner ‘The Phantom of The Bay – On Air Now!’ was seen across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The Phantom successfully evaded capture throughout Saturday.
But finally on Sunday afternoon it was tracked down in Grasmere Road in Ulverston by Lisa Lysons, husband Tom and daughter Victoria from Marton - who won £1,500.
However, Sunday proved not to be a good day for The Phantom of The Bay, as a few hours later it was identified again, this time by Rebecca Freeman from Lancaster, who tracked The Phantom down at Carnforth Railway station, winning £1,993 for her fantastic detective work.
