It's not something you expect to see when you glance in a car window.

But anyone on The Walk in Beccles on Tuesday morning might have had a chuckle to themselves when they looked in the window of a parked car - and saw a baby alpaca sitting in the front seat.

One person, who took a quick snap of the South American native - the young of which is known as a cria - said it raised a smile.

They said: "I just thought it amusing.

"There was a sign on the other side of the car but I didn’t read it, I was in a hurry."

It is unknown how long the baby alpaca was sat in the car for.
