Police in Dumfries had to deal with an unusual incident in the early hours of Wednesday morning... when they were called to reports of a llama on the side of the road.

Officers managed to guide it from Edinburgh Road, back into a field at Dalscone Farm Fun Park.

Posting on Facebook, the force said helping the animal was "no prob-llama".

As police officers we undertake lots of training to make sure we can respond to any situation, however we must have missed the page about dealing with an escaped llama in the middle of Dumfries during our nightshifts!

But ever the professionals it was no prob-llama for our cops who alpaca'd his bags and returned him home.
