Officers from the Metropolitan Police have been left scratching their heads after a runaway goat disappeared from a residential road in Cranham without a trace.

For the last few days, reports of a missing goat have circulated on social media, with confirmed sightings in Heron Way, Avon Road, Front Lane and even the A127, and today the police thought they may finally have cracked the case.

A Met spokesman confirmed officers were called to reports of the troublesome goat in Avon Road at 11.20am.

He told the Recorder that although eyewitnesses had described seeing the goat in the road, by the time officers arrived, “there was no trace” of the farmyard animal.

And so the search goes on.
