English Channel beaches in France were closed yesterday after a crocodile was said to have been spotted in the sea.Just in case...what?
The 'huge' creature was apparently seen swimming around sailing boats in the port of Boulogne.
It is high season on the Channel beaches, with thousands swimming and sunbathing, and a local official said: 'We decided to close all beaches nearby and ban swimming just in case.'
Earlier this week beaches were shut in the south of France following a shark alert, but the creature turned out to be a dolphin.*sigh*
