An English retreat George Clooney and his new wife Amal have reportedly bought comes with a ghostly view.

The couple has been linked to a $16 million (£10 million) manor house in the village of Sonning, and neighbour Uri Geller, a world-famous paranormal expert, tells Britain's Daily Express the site is haunted.

He says, "You can see his house from Sonning bridge and I have seen strange things happening on that bridge. There is a ghost of a little girl who crosses it. I have no doubt in my mind that George Clooney will see her. It is the best house in the neighbourhood to be able to see this ghost."

Geller, who was a longtime friend of the late Michael Jackson, previously claimed the child ghost was responsible for putting up a postbox in the middle of Sonning bridge in 2013.

The Clooneys' potential new English retreat comes with a library, spa and steam room, and a boathouse, as well as a separate cottage for guests.
