British police were on the alert today after a six-foot crocodile was reported to be on the run.

Nick Gargan, the Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Police, said the reptile had been spotted under a bridge in Bristol.

"One of our officers was flagged down by a bus driver today, claiming to have seen a 6ft crocodile under Coronation Bridge. We can't find it," he wrote on Twitter.

A mock croc account has since been started on the microblogging site.
