A spokesman for Lancashire Road Police said that a "newish driver" has swerved to "avoid a cheeky pheasant".

They lost control of the car, a Volkswagen, and ended up overturned in a field.

There were four young people in the car that sustained "very minor" injuries, the spokesman added.

They continued by saying the four all had seat belts on "which I think saved any serious injuries".
