Laura Page was walking in Barnby Dun at 1pm this afternoon, Thursday, June 16, with her 16-year-old nephew when they spotted a big black cat crossing a bridge over the canal.

Laura didn’t manage to get a photo but said: “It went over a bridge, we only had sight of it for probably five seconds, it was like a small Great Dane.

"It was only after we seen it we just thought that was a big cat and a helicopter starting circling so god knows if that knew too.
