Liverpool fans appear to have taken their support for the Reds to new heights after huge letters spelling 'LFC' were spotted carved onto a Shropshire hillside.
The letters, which appear between 85 and 95 metres long - similar to the length of the Anfield pitch, are thought to have been made by a vehicle and were spotted by an Ordnance Survey air camera operator over Titterstone Clee Hill, near the Shropshire town of Ludlow.
While the letters 'LFC' are most commonly associated with Liverpool, fans of local side Ludlow Town Football Club could also lay claim to the unusual landmark, which can be seen from as far as six kilometres away.
Danny Hyam, who works as part of Ordnance Survey's Consultancy and Technical Services team, has put forward one possible explanation for the mysterious letters.
He said: "I think we can safely rule out aliens on this occasion.
"Perhaps there is someone living in this area who supports Everton and has a back garden or bedroom window with a view of the hill and has a Liverpool supporting friend with an extreme sense of humour?
"It is one of the most unusual ways of showing support for a team I've ever seen."
