A woman driving to work in the early morning was surprised to come across two wallabies, writes Phil Hill.

The woman, who prefers not to be named, spotted the native Australian mammals hopping around Ash Priors Common, on the edge of Bishops Lydeard, near Taunton.

After she saw them and stopped to take these photos in the early morning gloom, they simply hopped off through a farm gate.

Does anyone know where they've come from and what they're doing in Ash Priors?
