Police came to the rescue of a loose goose which got into a flap and briefly held up traffic in Ipswich on Thursday morning.
Double-crewed officers Pc Clements and Pc James were on patrol in the Vernon Street area when flagged down by concerned members of staff at the East of England Co-op Foodstore and alerted to the wayward waterfowl.
The goose was plucked from traffic at about 9.30am.
Pc Clements took matters into his own hands – apprehending the bird and escorting it to the edge of the River Orwell.
Suffolk Constabulary posted a photo of Pc Clements and the goose on Instagram.
The post also indicated that the goose was last seen heading for safer water.
