The letters, which are almost as long as a football pitch, were spotted by an airborne camera on the north side of Titterstone Clee Hill, east of Ludlow – 100 miles from Anfield.
Measuring somewhere between 85 metres and 100 metres in length, the letters were captured by national mapping agency Ordnance Survey.
They can be seen from at least six kilometres away at the southern end of Brown Clee Hill.
Ordnance Survey’s Danny Hyam said: “It is one of the most unusual ways of showing support for a team I’ve ever seen.
“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?”
The agency’s flying unit sports a number of 196 megapixel cameras – more than 15 times the resolution of the camera on the new iPhone X – and takes more than 140,000 aerial images across the country every year.
A far cry from the cute-looking animals shared on social media today, Siamogale melilutra weighed about 50kg and had an unusually powerful bite – allowing it to crush bird bones and small mammals.
The University of Buffalo’s Dr Jack Tseng, who led a study of the prehistoric otter’s fossilised skull, said: “We don’t know for sure, but we think that this otter was more of a top predator than living species of otters are.
“Our findings imply that Siamogale could crush much harder and larger prey than any living otter can.”
The scientists compared computed tomography (CT) scans on the skulls of the ancestor specimen and 10 of its modern relatives.
They then created 3D computer models which showed how jaw stiffness correlated with the animals’ size.
The study, published in the Scientific Reports journal, showed the ancient animal’s jaw was six times sturdier than expected.
The experts said the powerful jaws combined with its size would have made it a formidable hunter.
Co-author Dr Denise Su, of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, said the Siamogale melilutra lived in a swamp-like habitat in Shuitangba, southern China.
She said: “At the time that the otter lived, the area where its remains were found included a swamp or a shallow lake surrounded by evergreen forest or dense woodland.
“There was a diverse aquatic fauna at Shuitangba, including fish, crab, molluscs, turtles and frogs, as well as many different species of water birds, all of which could have been potential prey for Siamogale melilutra.”
Although it has long been known that sheep are able to recognise the faces of their human handlers, scientists have now shown the farm animals can be trained to recognise images of famous people.
Professor Jenny Morton, the lead scientist in the Cambridge University study, said it showed sheep have face-recognition abilities comparable with those of humans or monkeys.
Her team trained eight sheep to recognise the faces of four celebrities – journalist Fiona Bruce, actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Emma Watson, and former US president Barack Obama.
In the tests, each animal was shown two faces, one of which was the target celebrity, and given an award of a cereal pellet if it approached the correct image.
They were then put in a pen and tested on whether they recognised the celebrities without the cereal rewards – and eight times out of ten they did.
It was also discovered that the sheep distinguished photographs of their handlers – people that the animals spend two hours a day in the company of – ahead of those of celebrities. They picked the real-life familiar faces over famous people seven times out of ten.
The sheep’s facial recognition abilities could be used to investigate Huntington’s disease, which can cause people to lose those very abilities, scientists said.
The team has now begun studying sheep genetically modified to carry the mutation that causes the disease.
Hopton Primary School in Mirfield, West Yorkshire, is teaching pupils about instruction writing during this half-term’s classes – and on Monday focused on one of life’s eternal questions: how to eat a KitKat.
The Year 1 group was tasked with writing a step-by-step guide to enjoying the chocolate wafer bar, but only after head teacher Andy Blakely had made sure their parents and guardians were alright with them eating one in class.
Letters were sent home last week to ask parents to phone the school if they did not want their child to take part.
If any of the five and six-year-olds were not allowed to participate, the head teacher said they would be able to watch their friends enjoy the treat instead.
Mr Blakely told The Huddersfield Daily Examiner that while no parents had turned down the opportunity for their child to have a KitKat, he felt it was important to keep them informed about what their kids were getting up to at school.
He said: “It’s not about penalising a child if a parent says no. No parents have contacted us to say no.
“But we do activities in food technology or art and design and we may ask parents for permission.
“It was done as a courtesy and out of respect for a parent’s choice.”
Schools have been under pressure to encourage healthy eating, especially when it comes to packed lunches.
The modestly sized 4.4m (14ft 5in) by 2.1m (6ft 11in) space in the private Tregenna Hill car park in St Ives, Cornwall, attracted the huge bid on 3 November after an auction was arranged by land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.
Space 19, which is conveniently located near the town centre, beach and harbour, was bought for the guide price of between £30,000 and £40,000, with the remainder of a 999-year lease from January 1988.
According to Clive Emson’s senior auction valuer Katie Semmens, there was plenty of interest in the space despite the hefty price tag.
She said: “The new owner was very keen to secure the spot and made a bid which was accepted prior to the auction.
“They now have easy year-round and secure parking with access to the town centre, and thereby its picturesque beach and harbour.”
Space 19’s eye-catching sale comes five years after three other spaces in nearby Barnoon Terrace were sold at auction for more than £160,000 combined.
Land and property owners in St Ives are used to commanding lofty fees, with a former council house there having sold at an auction in London in September for more than £1.4m.
Predictably, social media was awash with reaction and opinions – some good, some… not so.
One angry ex-Nutella fan wrote on Twitter: “If the rumors of #Nutella changing their recipe are true… I am boycotting them.”
Another said: “Why did u change the nutella formula. how could u do this.”
Popular confectionery makers frequently draw the ire of the consumer when their favourite treats’ recipes, packaging or appearance are tinkered with, with Toblerone, Maltesers, Walnut Whipand Jaffa Cakes coming under fire in the past year.
