A man identified as Paul Jones has claimed that a mermaid was washed up on a Norfolk beach, England, and filmed it as evidence.
According to him, he filmed it after he found the mythical creature in the surf.
Mr Jones posted a series of photographs taken at Great Yarmouth, which have been shared 15,000 times on social media in two days.
He wrote: “Today at Great Yarmouth we found a dead mermaid washed up on the beach.”
The creature has obvious fins and a tail, but a head which looks rather more human, despite decaying.
The torso is rotting and the entrails are visible, but the head and tail are more intact.
Many people who have shared the post are adamant that it is a mermaid, with one commenter referencing Disney’s The Little Mermaid by writing “RIP Ariel”.
Others have said it is nothing more than a dead seal, as the Norfolk coast has a large colony of grey seals regularly seen in the water.
