Essex lion search: Resident heard 'loud roar'
Police in Essex are investigating reports that a lion has been spotted in a field near St Osyth.
Police - who initially told residents to stay indoors after the sighting in fields off Earls Hall Drive - are looking for signs such as pawprints.
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.
Local resident Che Kevlin told the BBC he heard a "loud roar" at 22:00 BST.
