Orlan has visited York for the day on a coach trip, she was due to return to the coach at 2pm this afternoon but didn’t arrive. The last confirmed sighting of Orlan was at 12pm this lunchtime (Thursday 08 February 2024) on Parliament Street outside Marks and Spencers. Footage shows that she then crossed the road onto Picadilly.
