The wild animals were 25 per cent bigger than lions seen today in Africa and hunted in vast prides during the Ice Age.
It was previously thought that only jaguars and tigers roamed the British Isles during this time.
Scientists compared the DNA of super-size lion fossils found in Siberia and Germany with the decomposed remains of prehistoric wild beasts found in Yorkshire, Devon and London.
The DNA matched, proving the larger lions could have been prevalent in Britain as recently as 13,000 years ago.

"Graham Bartram, a British vexillologist who is, as of 2013, the secretary-general for congresses of the Fédération internationale des associations vexillologiques and the chief vexillologist of the Flag Institute, when interviewed on the BBC Broadcasting House programme on 13 October 2013, stated that either name was perfectly valid whatever the purpose. He stated that the theory that the flag should only be referred to as "Union Jack" when flown at sea was wrong."
