Police appeal after panther sighting in Norwich

Police in Norwich have made an appeal for people who spotted a panther-like creature roaming close to Norfolk County Council’s headquarters.

Norwich police took to Twitter to make the appeal. They said: “We had a report of a large cat, possibly a panther prowling around yesterday near Martineau Lane! Anyone see anything similar?!”

Police said they had received the report from a member of staff at Norwich Camping and Caravan Club in Martineau Lane.

A police spokeswoman said the person who reported the sighting said they had also found a dead Muntjac deer close to the campsite. She said officers had headed to the site, but had not found anything.
