The Galactic Centre is home to a number of unusual non-thermal radio emitting objects, such the filaments and threads near Sgr A, the Snake, and G357.7-0.1. This paper presents recent high resolution radio observations of an object first catalogued at low resolution nearly 20 years ago, which reveal it to have unsuspected properties. The possible classifications of this object are discussed.
