A man is to appear in court after being caught with a PIG outside a nightclub.

Thomas Murphy-Hankin, 26, was arrested after being found shouting and screaming in the street in Norwich.

He was found to have a pig with him, which is illegal as it was running loose.

Murphy-Hankin was arrested at around 10am on Wednesday before being charged with having a pig untethered and loose on a public highway.

He is also accused of a public order offence and having a dog dangerously out of control in a public place.
