Do these footprints - found in snow on countryside just outside of Tunbridge Wells - belong to the town's mysterious Bigfoot?

The unusually large prints were discovered just outside of High Woods, between Tunbridge Wells and Pembury, at the weekend.

Sent in to us by a reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, it was speculated they could have come from the eight-foot tall Kentish Apeman.

The beast has caught the nation's attention ever since we reported on claims it had been spotted on the Commons in November.

Our story was picked up by The Sun, Daily Mail, Metro and Telegraph and others.

It then sparked the interest of the London Cryptozoology Club, who went on an expedition to Tunbridge Wells earlier this month in search of the monster.

In a blog post by Matt Salusbury, he says how a group of members walked on the Commons trying to find the demonic-eyed monster.

He said: "Our plans, such as they were, mostly involved going to the pub and asking locals if they'd seen anything odd. 

'Sitting around the pub was particularly high on our list of priorities."

So, we ask, could these footprints belong to the Tunbridge Wells Bigfoot? If not, do you know who or what they could belong to?'

    This story is getting silly. There was no 'creature' reported in November 2012 from Tunbridge Wells. The original, and yet unfounded 'report' came from the Second World War era and I've already investigated this and found no evidence whatsoever.

    If there were something in the picture to give a sense of size and proportion, it would be easier to identify the prints - like maybe a coin, a human footprint, or a dragon's tooth. How big would you say they are compared to a North American Sasquatch or Tibetan Yeti?
