Pigs wreak havoc at golf club
Two people have been injured after two large pigs stormed a golf course and forced the temporary closure of the club.

They also injured a worker at the club who had tried to usher them off the course. “It was like a comedy script, you couldn’t have imagined it if you tried,” said a club spokesperson.
