A creature resembling a crocodile has been spotted wandering around outside residences in West Yorkshire.
Believed to be approximately 4ft in length, the mysterious reptile - which has been dubbed the 'Castleford Croc' - was most recently sighted in the back garden of nurse Sarah Jayne Ellis.
She recalled grabbing her phone and taking a few photographs of the creature, but admitted to not spending long watching it as she had just finished her night shift and needed to get some sleep.
When she returned to the window a few hours later, there was no sign of the crocodile.
She later showed the photographs she had taken to her sister-in-law Kate Ellis Holmes.
"I was just genuinely in disbelief when she was telling the story," she told Yorkshire Live
. "When I saw the picture I was in disbelief. I thought it was bizarre and a really interesting story."
The sighting is supported by a previous report of a similar animal by photographer Lee Collings who claimed that he had witnessed a small crocodile-like animal in a local nature reserve last year.
He said that he had heard rumors that a caiman had been set loose in the area.
"I am 46 years old and have been a birdwatcher for over 30 years, and I've never seen anything like this, other than a crocodile or alligator," he said at the time.
If there really is a caiman roaming around, it would certainly explain this recent sighting as well.
