Pupils and staff at a small rural school were left stunned when a muntjac deer bolted into the building.
A teacher at Wicklewood Primary, near Wymondham, was investigating a sighting of the animal in hedges on the school grounds at about 8.50am on Tuesday.
As she was joined by headteacher Sheila Greenacre however, the deer ran off in the direction of the school and into the staff toilets.
Nobody was hurt, and the deer managed to free itself and run back out of the school, across the road and into a nearby garden.
'I just thought I was getting to grips with being a head but I really wasn't sure that removing a muntjac deer from the toilets was part of my job,' Mrs Greenacre said.
