A MISSING pig was spotted wandering down the road.

Police received reports of a pig on the loose in Strensham on Thursday, before he was caught and returned home.

"Luckily he was located before he got onto or near the motorway and turned into pork scratchings," joked Malvern Cops on Twitter.

They added that, on going home, Harold the pig "ate carrots and biscuits that were used to entice him back into his pen".
