Update: Runaway dog now in police custody as officers seek owner
TRAFFIC on the A14 near Claydon was brought to a standstill today – by a runaway dog.
The alsatian was first spotted on the eastbound carriageway of the A14 near J52 at Claydon at 12.12pm.
The dog was running around in the road and running westbound along the eastbound carriageway.
Police put a rolling road block in place as they tried to slow the dog down and catch it.
The dog eventually ran under a bush, where police struggled to approach it.
One motorist said: “It was absolute chaos and amazing that this loose dog caused so many people to be delayed by up to 20 minutes.
“Apparently it was running around and proved difficult to catch.”
