Gloucestershire Police are warning drivers on the A40 near Highnam to watch out for wallabies.

In the last few days they have received a number of calls from members of the public reporting sightings of the kangaroo-like creatures in the road. The most recent sighting was just after 10pm last night.

Drivers are being advised to take extra caution while police make inquiries with local organisations to establish if any marsupials are missing.
