APPEAL FOR INFORMATION
Both the Council and West Yorks emergency services have received several early reports of a medium-to-large lizard in the River Aire (witness statements range in estimate from 10 – 45 feet – we currently have a number of possible explanations: a size-changing lizard, a series of lizards of varying size, or dramatic failings in school mathematics lessons).
Scientists and professors at the University of Leeds have yet to come up with an explanation of its origin, though it has been noted by colleagues from the University of the Highlands Inverness campus that Nessie hasn’t been sighted for several months.
Please see our hastily compiled album of photographic evidence and artist’s impressions of the aforementioned water-beast sent in by Leeds residents, and comment below with any evidence/sightings reports of your own.
Announcing: Leeds Armed Forces Day on Saturday 25 June from 11am to 4pm on Victoria Gardens (outside Leeds Art Gallery and Town Hall) and on Cookridge Street.
