A pair of terrified teens spotted the demon after taking the snap at a pub.
Spooked pals Sophie Killip and Kayleigh Lomas, both 19, had met up for a festive get-together at the boozer.
But they were left horrified when the spectre appeared at one of the party tables in the photograph.
The dark-haired child, who appears to have cuts on her head and be wearing old fashioned clothes, seems to be staring straight at the camera from sunken eyes.
Spooked Sophie, a student, said: “The table was just one down from us and nobody was sat there so we took a photo of the decorations because they were really nice.
“There was nothing there at the time but when we looked back at the photo we couldn’t believe it.
“It was pretty scary and I felt creeped out.
“It looked like a little girl staring directly back at us.
“I didn’t believe in ghosts until I saw this photo.
“No-one was sitting at this table yet there is most definitely something paranormal in the photo.”
The pair took the photo at Harry’s Bar and Grill in Newcastle. And Sophie sent it to a friend who “reads” ghost photos.
The pal admitted it was the “clearest evidence she had ever seen”.
Last year black-eyed child ghosts tormented many people across Britain, particularly those living in Cannock Chase, Staffs – said to be the UK’s most haunted area.
