Again not a definitive answer: but when I see clear yellow legs (without a pink or brown-reddish tinge, in a suspected hybrid, I think of an Emperor Goose first. So maybe a Snow x Emperor Goose hybrid? I think we had a similar bird before?

Looks like the same bird I saw in St Albans (link below). Emperor x Barnacle was the consensus. Cheers
