Police employ guardian angel for town's roads

Police in Fribourg, Switzerland, have employed a 'guardian angel' to encourage drivers to slow down on the town's roads.

The actor, dressed all in white and wearing a large pair of white wings, will patrol the streets waving at drivers that are speeding.

But the locals might not be as confused by the stunt as we were when we first saw it – it is part of a TV campaign that the authorities have been running called 'Slow down, take it easy.'
