Seven ducks who strayed onto the A13 this morning were kept safe thanks to the quick thinking of a savvy motorist.
Police were called at 7.13am today - Wednesday, May 18 - to reports of a highway obstruction on the A13 westbound at Dagenham.
Two ducks and five ducklings had been walking along the central lane of the highway.
The ducks were spotted by a driver who stopped behind them and turned on his hazard lights, shielding them until officers arrived.
Police removed the ducks from the A13 slip road for Dagenham/Hornchurch, before returning them to the safety of a public pond.
