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

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

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.
