The Ashfield neighbourhood policing team flew into action after receiving reports of a “two-foot tall, long, slender neck, kind of orange and black bill,” creature causing mayhem and running around on the A617, in Sutton-in-Ashfield, yesterday.
‘With traffic backing up, there was no flapping around from our NPT officers who carefully picked it up.
‘Switching out our usual suspects for a slightly quieter one the animal hitched a ride home
