An escaped llama caused a drama when it was spotted casually walking in the middle of a main road.

A walker saw the camelid happily trotting between Bedale and Leeming Bar, North Yorkshire.

Police were called at around 10.30am on Friday and around 20 minutes later were told its owners had located it safely.

The walker said: “I saw it and thought that horse is in a funny place, then I saw it wasn’t a horse.

“It was looking very pleased with itself walking straight up the middle of the road.

“It wasn’t distressed, it looked like it was enjoying itself.

“It was such a surreal moment.”

A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “We were called at about 10.30am this morning with a report that a llama was running in the road between Leeming and Bedale.

“About 20 minutes later, we received an update that the llama had been located by its owners and arrangements made to return it home, so it could cause no further drama.”
