A reader has reported seeing the ‘Fenland Big Cat’ around the Friday Bridge area last week.

John Johnson, of Victoria Road, Wisbech, says he spotted an animal crossing a field while walking his dog on Thursday at 5pm.

Mr Johnson said: “I was walking my dog on the old canal site in Elm when I saw an animal crossing the fields at high speed from Friday Bridge to the A1101.

“It was about as tall as a Labrador but twice as long and mainly black.

“It had a brown cat shaped head, so not a muntjac deer or fox. Did anybody else see it?”

There have been several sightings of a big cat creature across Fenland over the years.
