Witham: Olly hunted by Essex lion
8:00am Monday 10th September 2012 in News
Pop stars beware, the Essex Lion may have been in Witham.
A spoof twitter account was set up for the big cat last week.
In a tweet sent on August 28 @Essex_Lion said he was in the town looking for Olly Murs.
He said: “No sign of those TOWIE lot anywhere, so now in Witham looking for Murs.”
An operation was launched in last Sunday after a member of the public spotted what they thought was a lion in St Osyth.
It was called off the next day, police believe it was probably a large domestic cat
