Cumbria Police officers were confronted with the unusual sight of a large, green tractor parked in The Crescent, Carlisle, in the early hours.

Officers tracked the driver down who had driven the vehicle into the city because he fancied a pizza.

The force tweeted a picture of the tractor , which has been re-tweeted dozens of times.
