Peter Phillips was driving his van through the town when he spotted the surreal sight.

"It was incredible - it looked like he was dragging an 18lb cod and he kept a straight face, as if there was nothing unusual," Mr Phillips said.

"I have no idea who he was and what he was doing but after a short bit of filming him I just left him and got back into my van."

It's not the first time a bizarre sighting such as this has been pictured.

Within the space of two weeks in London in 2014, a woman was spotted walking a man on a lead and a man was pictured walking two ducks.
