A video of a Whakatane Police officer helping ducks cross the road is making the rounds on social media after it was posted this morning.

The video shows a member of public and a Police officer helping a duck and its ducklings to cross the road at a busy Whakatane roundabout.

Whakatane driving instructor Marylou Bruys posted the video to her driving school Facebook page this morning, after witnessing the event while out driving with a student.

“I was just in a driving lesson and had come back from the heads, it was by Spice Guru at the bottom of the Strand,” says Mary Lou.

“I said to my student double check this roundabout because it has five roads coming off it, and I always have my students double check that one.”

“The Police officer caught my eye and I looked and I thought why is he bending down when I saw all these baby ducklings.”

“They were heading towards the town and the Police officer as well as a woman hearded them and they came right across the crossing, so I assume they were going back towards the river."

“I’ve been a driving instructor and I thought I’d seen it all.”

“One time in Kopeopeo I saw a man in a kilt playing a bagpipe with dogs following him, but I didn’t get a chance to video that one.”

“Today has made everyone smile,” says Marylou.
