Police officers had their hands full at the weekend when they were called to round up a loose pig in Weston-super-Mare.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary’s Weston police team was called to reports of a loose pig trotting around yesterday (Monday).

The cheeky swine was spotted next to Sainsbury’s, in Cabot Way.

A spokesman from the force said: “We were called to a loose pig at 8.25am.

“Some members of the public had got it into their garden.”

PC Holly Edwards helped to round up the pig before the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs was called to reunite it with its owner.
