A large black panther-like creature was spotted running across a field at Foxton in the latest sighting of the infamous ‘black beast’.
Schoolgirl Sarah Burdett had a shock when she saw the beast from her bedroom as it moved from the cover of a hedge off North Lane in the village.
She rushed to the field with her dad’s partner Lora Cannon, but the large cat was no longer anywhere to be seen.
However the pair found what they believed were its prints and droppings, which they photographed as evidence.
The incident is the latest in a series of sightings of ‘black beasts’ stalking the Harborough countryside which go back as far as the 1990s.
