A terrifying crocodile-like creature has been spotted in London.

The monstrous reptile was snapped by city worker Ben, who took a break from his Canary Wharf office job to stroll with a colleague at lunchtime yesterday.

While wandering around Millwall Outer Dock on the Isle of Dogs, Ben and his pal made the disturbing discovery.

Ben told News Shopper: "I was out for a stroll on my lunch break with a colleague and taking our usual route around the docks enjoying the sun.

"While circumnavigating Millwall Outer Dock we passed the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, where there were children enjoying a paddle in canoes.

"Then to our horror we spotted what appears to be some sort of large reptile. My colleague thought it might be a dinosaur but I corrected him that it looked more like a crocodile.

"Having said that nobody saw Brexit coming so perhaps there is some sort of prehistoric Nessie-like creature living in the depths, or shallows, of Millwall Dock?

"I do hope the children are ok."
