Thankfully the fix for this is pretty simple, and is detailed below

1. Go to Settings

2. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars

3. Tap on your account

4. Next to Mail, move the slider to the off position

5. Power off the phone

6. Power on the phone

7. Go to Settings

8. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars

9. Tap on your account

10. Next to Mail, move the slider to the on position

11. Go back to Mail and once synchronised, you will have no ghost unread mail
