Neil Arnold (on the right, in the picture above) takes a close look at the “Essex Lion” saga and offers us a voice of clarity in this deeply surreal affair!
Neil kicks off as follows:
“Okay, so the rumours circulated that there was a lion on the loose near Clacton in Essex. How many more stories like this are going to be followed up by droves of police officers and reported on my drama hungry papers ? It’s a sorry state of affairs, and it’s hysteria that makes a mockery of my research because when investigators, as usual, find no evidence of the lion king, everyone starts laughing and saying that there are no large cats roaming Britain.”
