Another big feline has been seen creeping and prowling through St Albans fields this week, the latest account from a string of eyewitnesses who have sworn the Hertfordshire beast is genuine.

Sharon Smith, 53, was stuck in Hatfield Road traffic on Friday evening at about 6.30pm, when she glanced out the window and saw something moving in the field by the thoroughfare.

She said it was big, sleek, cream, and moving towards the car.

Doing a double-take, Sharon tried to alert her partner - but he was driving and concentrating on the road.

She said: “I could see its back and it was creeping along and I thought, ‘that doesn’t look like anything I have seen before’.
