A large crocodile sighted in the English Channel on Friday was actually a piece of wood, coastguards in Dover and France said yesterday. The wood probably did look like a crocodile from a distance, officials said. Bathing in the sea in and around Boulogne-sur-Mer, France, was suspended as a precaution while a search was conducted.
The claim of a crocodile sighting was first made in a message sent to a local newspaper, La Voix du Nord.
