An alpaca has confused and delighted residents of a small French town after wandering into an optician's shop.

The fuzzy creature spent half an hour quietly browsing lenses in the town of Hennebont in Brittany.

Employees closed the doors to stop it fleeing before calling the police.

While they initially thought it had escaped from a nearby circus, authorities found the private owner who came to pick up the wayward animal shortly afterwards.

Within half an hour the owner - who wished to remain anonymous - had arrived to collect the alpaca.
