A dogged way to drive

Motorists had to do a double take when they spotted a Collie - strapped to the back of a motorbike.

The long-haired dog was kitted out in a grey jacket and strapped to the back of a bike on a busy roundabout in Gloucester.

But if you're thinking this might be a good way to transport your pet, you may want to think again as Gloucestershire Police has now issued a warning to motorcyclists discouraging them from copying the risky stunt.

We are making further enquiries and are going to contact the owner of the bike to get some more information.

This is not the safest way to transport a dog.

Tweeting about the incident, officers said: "While you may want to take your dog somewhere new, we don't advise this method of transportation!"

If you saw what happened, you can call Gloucestershire police on 101, quoting incident number 403 of April 27.
