Police are urgently appealing for any information whatsoever after several kids in a phonebox rang through and reported seeing a flying pig over Birmingham this afternoon.
Officers say that no one has reported a missing flying pig, but they say they are taking the reports "extremely seriously".
Since the West Midlands police failed to take seriously a death threat resulting in the disciplining of several officers who failed to act on the information received, the force has been eager to show that it will now act on any information received.
In the past 4 months, they have pursued several dancing dogs, a unicorn and 49 gnomes and pixies tipped off as illegal immigrants.
A senior officer stated today,"We did actually recover one gnome who turned out to a Latvian midget who had run away with the circus, so our crime figures are up following this incentive."
