A video has emerged of a man walking around Canary wharf - and even popping into Pret for a sandwich - dressed in a raw chicken skin onesie.

The strange spectacle was carried out by performance artist Lewis G Burton, who wore the meaty outfit as part of a project called Flesh.

The project has been described as an "experiment that examines the relationship between identity and its commodification through social medias."

The 22-year-old was sewn into the suit before making the journey into London to terrify passers-by, according to the Evening Standard.
