Suffolk police officers found their route blocked by a flock of ducks in Little Glemham Picture: SUFFOLK CONSTABULARY

Suffolk Constabulary

A rowdy rabble of feathered felons caused an unusual obstruction for Suffolk police officers patrolling their rural beat yesterday.

Suffolk Constabulary shared a picture on social media of the offending flock of delinquent ducks, which PC Barber and PC Phillips came across “causing congestion” in Little Glemham, near Framlingham.

The photo quickly gained more than 750 “likes” on Instagram and a further 240 on Twitter – as well as an assortment of duck related puns.

Karen Simmons praised the police for having “quacked” the case, while Edward Packard suggested the officers should get the culprits “up before the beak”.

Healthwatch Suffolk’s chief executive Andy Yacoub, asked whether the obstruction had taken place in “Great Waddlingfield”.

It is not known what became of the feathered offenders, who are thought to have taken flight before the old bill could accuse them of fowl play.
