Video: Man driving through British countryside has journey interrupted by a wallaby

Have your say

This is the moment a driver winding through the British countryside had his journey interrupted - by a WALLABY.

Footage shows the bouncing marsupial - which is native to Australia - leaping across a narrow lane near Stinchcombe, Glos. The motorist who spotted the kangaroo-like creature, who asked not to be named, said: “When it was stood at the side of the road when I first saw it, it was over 5ft. “It hopped down the road and then off into a field. “I thought ‘strewth - that’s a kangaroo’.” The man said he spotted the animal while driving home from work in Bristol late on Saturday night, when he took a detour because his normal route was closed.
