Essex 'lion': Spotters adamant big cat still at large


A couple who claimed to have seen an animal which looked like a lion in an Essex field say they believe the creature is still at large.

A search for the "very large animal" seen near Earl Hall Drive in St Osyth, near Clacton-on-Sea, at about 19:00 BST on Sunday was called off on Monday.

Gill Atkin, on holiday in St Osyth with her husband Steve, told Dave Monk on BBC Essex what they saw.
