That looks like a Panther A or G. Hopefully a captured one, because if it's got a german crew, those Churchies are in for a very rude surprise.
Correct, it's a Panzerkampfwagen Panther Ausf G. This tank originally belonged to Panzer Brigade 107 which fought in the Southeast of the Netherlands in Sept-Nov 1944. After the battle of Overloon this tank was found abandoned in a barn with no fuel by the British 6th Guards Tank Brigade who decided to put it to good use.After being repainted and named 'Cuckoo' the tank was used against its former owners until she broke down during Operation Veritable in February 1945.
