crocodile on loose in Bristol


Amidst the biblical rains hitting the west country, things took a turn for the weird yesterday when a bus driver alerted police to having seen a 6ft Crocodile swimming in the puddles of Easton. 

Police were called out to track down the roving reptile but couldn’t find any trace. Nick Gargan, the chief constable of Avon and Somerset police said the Crocodile was spotted beneath a bridge but urged concerned residents nearby not to stay indoors but to think twice if they were planning on ‘water-skiing’. 

The crocodile has since setup it’s own Twitter account, follow @TheBristolCroc for updates.
