This is the moment what is believed to be a red deer was spotted in the middle of the street in St Ives.

Christine Lees stopped to film the moment on Trelawney Road.

The curious creature was caught in her headlights on Tuesday night.

It can be seen twitching its ears and trotting towards the car, but did not seem fazed!

Hundreds of people commented on the post.

Although rare, some locals say they have spotted deers in the Carbis Bay area before.
