A pigeon that was trapped behind the grille of a car for 200 miles has died.
Martin Stacey struck the bird while driving through Gloucestershire on his way to Guernsey.
Mr Stacey was only made aware of the bird by a passerby at the end of the trip, that included travel on a motorway and an eight-hour ferry ride.
The bird was freed by a local garage mechanic, but unfortunately died despite veterinary treatment.
Mr Stacey said: "Somehow it survived the impact and became stuck behind my front grille about eight inches off the road."
