The mystery of a giant octopus spotted in Great Yarmouth has been solved.
An enormous, 50ft long octopus was spotted in the seaside town on April 1, attracting much intrigue. However this mystery has now been solved.
It has emerged that the bulging-eyed monster is the star water finale of ‘Pirates Live’ which is now being performed in front of packed audiences at the Hippodrome Circus.
Show producer Jack Jay, who portrays Captain Jack Hawkseye said: “It started as an April Fool’s day joke that actually was real.
“The sighting is in the water spectacle that houses the huge galleon in the port of Yarmouth in our new show.
“Olly the Octopus saves the day at the end of the show and he’s huge. You have to see it to believe it.”
Pirates Live is showing at 2.30pm and 6.30pm daily until April 23, with extra shows over the Easter weekend.
