The camouflaged ‘Bushman’ prankster has been spotted in the city centre on more than one occasion over the past few weeks.

On Sunday (27 September), Bushman was waiting for victims outside St George’s Shopping Centre in Fishergate.




Covered head-to-toe in leaves, Bushman was seen standing still in a pot next to a tree before jumping out on unsuspecting passers-by.

The prank was being filmed for new YouTube channel Sugar TV.

A video posted to the channel shows the hilarious reactions of the passers-by – and the unfortunate moment when Bushman overbalanced in his pot and hit the deck.

Preston photographer Donna Clifford captured some of the funny reactions.
