Rabbit mayhem

Hungary's busiest highway, connecting Budapest with the Austrian capital Vienna, was closed early on Monday after a truck carrying rabbits crashed.

Five-thousand of the animals were let loose on the road, police say.

The M1 motorway was closed about 25 miles west of Budapest and could remain closed for hours while police try to capture the escaped animals, highway police spokeswoman Viktoria Galik says.

"There are thousands of them on the road but they're not using their newfound freedom well, they're just sitting around, eating grass and enjoying the sun," Ms Galik said.
