A tiny dog caused travel delays when it sauntered in front of a train forcing the driver to slowly follow it along the tracks to the station.
The clip shows bemused commuters waiting on the platform at Newcourt station in Exeter, Devon, as the naughty pooch runs in front of the 3.40pm service.
It happily trots along the tracks forcing the train driver to inch along at snail’s pace to avoid running over the white dog.

But the animal, which had managed to get on the tracks, refuses to budge and the train driver resorts to desperate measures.
Eventually, the train driver gets out of the carriage to try and coax the dog from the track and it promptly runs away.
Some passengers said they were delayed for up to two hours because of the dog on the tracks.
Matt Dickens was waiting on the platform and filmed the drama unfolding, and watched as the dog slowly sauntered onwards – with the train following slowly behind.

Mr Dickens, 34, an IT engineer at the Met Office, said: ‘At about 3.45pm yesterday the dog started causing disruption.
‘I went to get a train at 4.10 from Newcourt Station and one train in each direction was showing as cancelled due to this.
‘The 3.40 train appeared at the platform at about 4.25, moving very slowly as the dog was on the track in front of it.
‘I saw the dog on the track walking in front of the train and after a minute or two the dog stopped.
‘The driver then had to stop the train and got off to try and catch the dog but it ran off as soon as he got off the train.
‘There was no sign of the owner and no I have no idea what type of dog it was.’
