Is there a crocodile on the loose in Bristol?

A hunt has been launched for a 2m (6ft) crocodile believed to be on the run in Bristol.

The search was launched after a bus driver said he had spotted the beast under a bridge, Nick Gargan, the chief constable of Avon and Somerset Police, said.

‘One of our officers was flagged down by a bus driver today, claiming to have seen a 6ft crocodile under Coronation Bridge. We can’t find it,’ he tweeted.

A mock Twitter account for ‘Chris The Croc’ was started and inexplicably had more than 1,200 followers by lunch-time.

‘I can confirm that I am in fact a real Crocodile, lured to Bristol under false pretences by a mischievous Penguin,’ he tweeted.

The tech-minded croc also confirmed he was undecided whether he supported Bristol Rovers or City.
