On a recent site visit to Markfield, I was a little late arriving due to technical problems which is another way of saying; shortage of petrol. On arrival, I met a man who had looked like he had seen a ghost! He had a pale face with a definite twitch to his features - our Engineering manager. He told me that he had accessed the bunker, disabled the alarm and begun to sweep up the usual alluvial deposits when he had disturbed an apparently sleeping crocodile. I queried this only to be told that this creature was over a foot long with a leg at each corner and a long tail at the end. There was no mention of a head but I assumed it would be at the opposite end to the tail.
