A HOLIDAY park manager has assured visitors he is satisfied that there are no alligators on the loose after police were called on Tuesday following an alleged sighting.

Police were called to the Waveney Valley Lakes in Wortwell, close to the Suffolk/Norfolk border, after the man told police he saw two of the giant animals on the surface of the water.

He is believed to have taken a picture on his mobile phone.

Park manager Dave Potter said today: “I don’t know when the person saw it. He had been here and saw what he thought was two alligators. We had a visit from the Safer Neighbourhood Team. We feel that what he had seen was a pair of rather large logs.

“I do not know who the person is. He was here and then he called the police. He didn’t report it to us.

“We did a head count and all the residents and their dogs are here.

“Nobody has been bothered.”
