While enjoying their retirement with a cup of tea in the garden, a couple got into an altercation with their neighbours.

Unfortunately for them, the neighbours happened to be a pair of llamas, who broke down the fence and attacked the couple inflicting serious injuries.

The police were subsequently called, and a personal injury claim pursued but, unfortunately for the couple, the culprits could not be pursued, as they had no previous convictions for GBH.

Backchat wonders whether the llamas got hauled in for spitting at the officers.
