It’s a dinosaur! T-Rex tree looms out of Alby countryside

The legend of Black Shuck is carved into East Anglian folklore.

The ghostly black dog is said to roam the countryside and so-called sightings of a giant cat or dog are reported every year.

But this is the first time people in Norfolk will have ever encountered a jurassic monster.

This fantastic photograph - dubbed the T-Rex tree - was shared on our new reader-content website, iwitness24, and has gone down a storm on social network site Twitter.

Spike Malin uploaded the picture after he was set a project. Mr Malin has recently joined a camera club at Blickling Hall, where he works, and one of the challenges was to photograph trees.

Mr Malin said: 'We were driving along and thought 'blimey, that looks just like a T-Rex'. I haven't done anything to the photograph - we just happened to see it.'

He said the tree is on a single-track, narrow country lane near Alby, in north Norfolk, and one commenter on the iwitness24 website said: 'How realistic is that? Great shot, love it.'
