Police were called to a stretch of Daventry Road near Norton at 8.45am this morning following reports of seven escaped turkeys walking in the road.

A spokesperson for Northamptonshire Police said the turkeys, later revealed to be guineafowl, were found in the road on a blind corner trying to fly over a nearby fence.

The owner of the birds arrived at the scene shortly afterwards to remove them from the area.
