An escaped micro-pig gave one resident a bit of a shock in Sidmouth this week.

Francine Hayes was driving down Balfours on Tuesday, June 25 when she spotted what she thought was a wild boar.

The 69-year-old, of Balfour Gardens, said: "I was driving the car and I couldn't believe my eyes. I saw what I thought was a wild boar.

"It was a bit of a shock, I just thought, I must take a photo, and got out the car. Then she started to come towards me grunting so I jumped back into the car.

"I put the picture on social media and someone commented saying she was a tame micropig that has escaped from the reserve nearby and that she even had her own Instagram page - The Amazing World of Phoebe.

"Turns out she is a lovely little pig."
