This footage shows a herd of deer grazing in the garden of a resident in Norfolk.

Paul Morgan, who lives near Watton, was shocked to find a herd of deer relaxing in his garden at his home.

He took the footage on Sunday afternoon and then posted it to Facebook, where it quickly gained lots of attention.

The animals are believed to be Roe deer, a small species and one of Britain's native deer. They are also said to avoid fields which have livestock in it because the animals make the grass unclean, possibly explaining why they chose Mr Morgan's garden.
