MYSTERIOUS remains washed up on a beach are being likened to those of a mermaid.
A dog-walker found the brittle skeleton at low tide.
Ben Landricombe, 38, said: “It’s like a human backbone with a fin.
"It looks like the remains of a mermaid.”
MoD maintenance worker Ben made the find on Friday in a cove at Jennycliff Beach, Plymouth, Devon.
He then showed the skeleton to his neighbours and pals in nearby Turnchapel.
Ben added: “The whole fishing village has no idea what it was supposed to be.”
Many shared the theory that it could have been a mermaid.
But an archaeology expert dampened excitement after studying photos of the bones.
Dr James Morris, senior lecturer in archaeology at the University of Central Lancashire, said: “I’d say they are either sheep, goat or roe deer.”
