Road hog causes chaos on busy highway until police save its bacon
A fugitive pig caused a hazard for drivers after running on to a main road.
Emergency services were called to the A90 at Bridge of Don in Aberdeen at 11.25am on Friday after reports of a runaway hog.
The farmyard animal had made a break for it and was running about on the busy road's central reservation.
When officers arrived they "cajoled" the pig into safety at a Shell garage.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: "We traced the pig at a nearby petrol station.
"Officers cajoled the pig and contacted the farm to get it lifted.
"The farmer has recovered the pig."
