The sight of a woman walking a man on a dog lead in a London street this morning sparked confusion among passers-by.

The smartly-dressed man was seen being pulled along with a pink lead around his neck in Farringdon.

A woman, casually holding a coffee cup and holding the other end of the lead, is seen strolling in front of him.

Images of the bizarre scene quickly spread across social media and footage of the stunt was later sent to ITV London by a PR agency.

One user said: "Officially say weirdest thing.. Woman walking a man to work.. On a lead... On his hands and knees... Seriously!?!?".
