Police in the south-east of England thought they were imagining things when they saw a giant white rabbit hopping down the road.

They spotted the bunny in the middle of a busy road in Canterbury in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The two officers tried to catch the creature, but weren't having much luck until some passers-by stopped to help.

It took ten people to catch the rabbit, which has been nicknamed Tiny, and is now being cared for by animal experts.

Tiny was taken to the Barton animal hospital in Canterbury, to be picked up by the RSPCA.

A spokeswoman for Kent Police said officers still don't know where the huge rabbit came from.
