There may, or may not, be a lion on the loose in Essex .
We could be snarky about it being a slow news day - OR we could give you lots of pictures of cute lion cubs.
[Insert joke about TOWIE and red carpets]
The lion, if there is one, was probably as adorable as this once.
It may have had brothers and sisters.
It may have survived the harsh Essex winters by eating snowballs.
This may, or may not, be a picture of it learning to swim at Colchester Leisure World.
This would be inadvisable on the A12, particularly the busy section around Brentwood.
Have run out of Essex-based captions.
The baby lions are angry now.
