If you go down to the beach today, you’re sure of a big surprise. For deep in the stones where no-one dare goes, lies a beast with angry red eyes.

A huge sea ogre has taken up residency on Cleveleys beach, leaving some people questioning whether this was the real reason for our recent misbehaving tides.

No one has seen actually seen him move. He appears to have turned to stone, but who knows what he gets up to when darkness falls. – Cleveleys Welcomes an Imposing New resident

    Thanks for commenting. Yes, it’s fascinating to see it rise up from the receding tide.
