Police officers inadvertently recreated a scene from the movie Hot Fuzz when they were forced to chase a swan off a fast moving motorway.
The M5 had to be closed after the swan ended up on the road and refused to be moved from the middle lane.
In similar style to the comedy movie staring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, officers from Devon and Cornwall Police were caught trying to tackle the bird.
Sergeant Harry Tangye said the swan was '"standing around in lane 2" of the motorway at around 6am on February 17.
Tangye was a member of the armed response team who were tasked with getting the swan off the road and into the adjacent field.
