They say it's a "wyrm":
Wyrm (plural wyrms): (mythology, fantasy) A huge limbless and wingless dragon or dragon-like creature, or sea serpent.*

But it seems like a good example of British humour?  

Using camping equipment as a helmet looks like something from Monty Python; see the original video from "Erwin Saunders" (not sure that is his real name) https://youtu.be/3JiFw9g0duE?t=601

Here is the link to the "Wyrm", 13:48 into the video: https://youtu.be/3JiFw9g0duE?t=828

It did have legs and my first thought was some sort of giant salamander, they do occur in Asia, but this video is not in Asia. I have to admit to being a little bit stupid, I would have tried to catch it, it wasn't "that" big!

It looks to me like a giant salamander. https://nationalzoo.si.edu/animals/japanese-giant-salamander

Quote

Japanese giant salamanders are the second-largest salamander species in the world, reaching lengths of up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) and weighing up to 55 pounds (23 kilograms). Chinese giant salamanders take first place.

They're amphibian, but can survive on land.

I had a second look; a salamander body is a good guess. It seems like the front legs are positioned further back from the head than on a real one. The head of the creature could be modelled from a combination of a catfish (front tentacles and mouth) and a ceratopsid /  Centrosaurus (back section of head).
