I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

I've just been reading about this too. I just hope no one gets hurt and they don't shoot the lion - that would be very sad. How the **** could it escape - someones head is gonna roll for that!

Send in 'Miss Piggy' from TOWIE, she'll scare the living daylights out of poor ol' Simba!

Incompetence is one of mans most common traits....

I share your feelings on hoping for a happy ending though.

I hope they don't shoot it, because it's only been in recent years that I've accepted that this situation was fictional:

How the hell do they not knwo where it came from?!

If no Zoo has realised it's got a lion misisng then it must be a private owner.

The article has changed a few times (Mail) since posting the link, they originally mentioned a zoo, now its a circus lion...

Yeah, it was the red nose, pointy hat and oversized shoes that gave it away!

Quote

Police in Essex are investigating reports that a lion has been spotted in a field near St Osyth.

Police - who have told residents to enjoy the bank holiday but "be cautious" - are looking for signs after the sighting off Earls Hall Drive.

Essex police are working with experts from Colchester Zoo who believe the reports to be genuine after being shown a photograph by a member of the public.
