Nigel Holroyd woke up to the news that a crocodile was on the run in his Yorkshire hometown.

Nigel Holroyd thought, ‘That looks like my garden.’

Furthermore, he was correct. His neighbor Sarah Jayne Ellis had gone to the press with a rough picture of the puzzling monster, presently named the ‘Castleford Croc’.

The medical caretaker snapped the photo of the 4ft ‘reptile’ in Nigel’s lawn earlier heading to sleep, tired from her late shift at the emergency clinic.

At the point when it disappeared a couple of hours after it happened, she expected it more likely than not to be genuine.

It likewise fitted with one more locating related to ‘crocodile’ at a close ordinarily standby in May last year.

Yet, the great individuals of Castleford can breathe a sigh of relief indeed – the secret has been resolved.

Nigel told the media, ‘It’s just a plastic toy crocodile.”

“I left it in the grass to scare off my neighbor’s cat from my garden, but I ended up scaring her.”

According to a bricklayer, he purchased the croc in Florida for his child back in 2000, and the loved toy has been passed down to his one-year-old grandson Ronnie.

‘It’s certainly got out a hand,’ Nigel, 58, accepted the entire family has been in ‘hysterics’ at the story.

Added, ‘I’ll be honest, I don’t think I’ve even spoken to (Sarah) yet.

“She never came round and said, “Oh, there’s a crocodile in your back garden.”

“But she was working through the night, so when she came home the crocodile would have been sitting in the grass.”

“When I came home from work I picked it up and put it back in the shed.”

“She probably thought it must have been real when it disappeared.”
