There are fears the ‘UK cat killer’ has struck in Sussex

Have your say

Police arrived to deal with a reported dead body in Hampshire woodland - only to see the ‘corpse’ stand up and walk away.

Hampshire Constabulary received a call from walkers reporting they had found a body in the area off Claycart Road in Aldershot yesterday afternoon.

As officers arrived, they realised it was a sleeping man who then got up and walked off.

One of the officers revealed the odd episode in a tweet using the #joblikenoother hashtag.
