Bone-crunching vulture makes a pit stop on a Peterborough road 


As reasons for being late go, a vulture causing a traffic jam would be right up there, but that’s precisely what happened in Peterborough of all places.

‘Vigo’, a bone-eating bird with an 8ft wingspan, stunned motorists when it landed in the middle of a busy road in Cambridgeshire on Saturday.

The bearded vulture, or lammergeier, is rarely seen in the UK. Normally found in Alpine regions, it is believed to have spent the summer roosting in the Peak District.

Recent sightings of Vigo are the first of a bearded vulture flying in British skies since it was spotted and photographed in 2016 over Dartmoor in Devon.
