Police Approach 'Fisherman' Ignoring Lockdown Rules Only To Discover It's A Scarecrow
Police in France approached what they thought to be a fisherman breaking lockdown rules - only to find it was a scarecrow.
Just last week cops in France thought they spotted a woman flouting social distancing rules to lie out in the sun, but upon closer inspection they found it was a blow up doll. Easy mistake to make.
Now, new images show a second incident, in which a scarecrow was surrounded by police.
The photos were shared on social media with the caption: "After the blow up doll, now it's a scarecrow's turn to be busted by the police for not respecting lockdown!"
The incident took place in Cabourg, Normandy, and has given people a fair few laughs with one person responding to the post to say: "And there are three of them, just in case things turn ugly."
While a second chipped in: "You're lucky that they didn't beat up the scarecrow. The blow up doll was less lucky."

Last week, Jane Kozlowski caught the moment a police officer approached a blow up doll on Carnon beach, near Montpellier, seemingly keen to give it a telling off about breaching lockdown.
Kozlowski said: "I am currently making a documentary about living in isolation during the coronavirus lockdown. I have just finished my first film in a series.
"Every day I film the sea, the horizon, the beach, my neighbours. I live here, my terrace gives straight onto the beach.
"When I got up, I saw this parasol on the beach with this 'woman' under it. I found that what this woman was doing was very daring, because the police patrol all day long, with their helicopter, on foot or in a boat.
"After about three hours, I decided to start filming her. I have a HD camera for my work, so I zoomed in to see her up close and then it suddenly hit me that it was a blow up doll. It wasn't long before the cops showed up.
"It fills my heart to have made so many people laugh, especially during these strange times."
