POLICE have filmed the moment a majestic male deer crosses a New Forest road.

The stag was caught on film by a Hampshire Constabulary Safety Camera Van, whilst carrying out enforcement in the Beaulieu area.

The police took to Twitter to share the video.

In a post, Hants Roads Policing said: "Shows why it is so important to keep your speed down & be prepared for the unexpected. We know he's not a reindeer, but perhaps he looking to help Santa!"
