A mummy has been spotted along the side of the river in Bristol.

A freaky object, which appeared to be a makeshift man wrapped up in rope, was spotted huddled next to the wall at the foot of some steps on the banks of the floating harbour near Bristol Bridge and, understandably, it spooked passers-by.

No one seems to know where the figure came from, but it appears to be a piece of metal wrapped in rope with realistic arms folded across its body.

It's also not clear how long it has been there, but appears to be a little worse for wear, according to the Bristol Post newspaper.

Unsuspecting Londoners were chosen as the first test subjects for Alton Towers Resort's latest Halloween attraction.

The brave individuals were singled out to take on the scare maze and will go on to be the first to experience the theme park's brand new secret attraction for 2018, known by its code name Secret Weapon 8.

Last Thursday, the people were chosen across the capital by a mysterious group from the woods surrounding the village of Alton.

The commuters were carted into a rickety wooden cage on wheels and were given a glimpse of what guests can expect at the live action maze which is a prelude to SW8.

On Halloween night, more members of the public will be singled out by the unidentified figures at the theme park and will be tasked with braving the maze attraction in the hope of joining the elite team of SW9 participants next year.
