This is the moment a driver winding through the British countryside had his journey interrupted – by a wallaby.
Footage shows the bouncing marsupial – which is native to Australia – leaping across a narrow lane near Stinchcombe, Gloucestershire.
The motorist who spotted the kangaroo-like creature, who asked not to be named, said: “When it was stood at the side of the road when I first saw it, it was over 5ft.
“It hopped down the road and then off into a field.
“I thought ‘strewth – that’s a kangaroo’.”
The man said he spotted the animal while driving home from work in Bristol late on Saturday night, when he took a detour because his normal route was closed.
