The two PCs at Halesworth then had to spend time “trying desperately to keep them distracted until their owner arrived”.

The officers found the pair of “very large sows out for their morning constitutional” on the B1124, near Bernard Matthews, at around 6am on Thursday, August 13.

They managed to guide the animals into a nearby field - but Halesworth officers joked that, judging by pictures take at the time, it “appears their efforts were not appreciated”.
