Donnington Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT] said they were called to collect the found items that were submerged in a nearby lake.

When officers returned to the police station, they found a crustacean - believed to be a freshwater crayfish - among the items they had picked up.

Officers returned it to the wild.

Announcing their discovery on Twitter, Donnington SNT said: "This little critter was found amongst the items when officers returned to the station... luckily it didn't get pinched and is now back home in the wild again."
