What's that prototype, Shackleton-like, with a single tail and a bubble canopy? ? ?

This would be a great thread for all postwar captured exhibits in the UK!! Hoping for some in 'colour' too :)

Thanks!

It is one of those obscure prototype that most probably did not go any further because of its sheer ugliness.......
