Two pigs are hogging officers’ attention after the four-legged troublemakers escaped and were running loose in a village.

Two police officers managed to catch the pair and are now currently “piggy-sitting” while the swines eat acorns in someone’s front garden.

East Herts Rural Police tweeted: “We have two officers piggy-sitting whilst we await the owner so they can go home.”

The pair are now hamming it up and appear to be having a lovely afternoon out, foraging in leaves.
