Police officers in Louth, Lincolnshire have reported multiple sightings of a squirrel sized monkey roaming the countryside.
PC Paul French was the first policeman to spot the maverick primate as it ran in front of his police car as he drove through South Cockerington last Friday.
On Sunday PC Ian Garrick reported spotting the creature again in the same area. Both the police officers described the monkey as brown and the same size as a squirrel.
There is only one licence issued in the area for keeping a monkey, and that animal has not been reported missing. Police are appealing for information regarding the case.
