Photographer Erik Scraggs was at the event when he managed to capture the extraordinary moment. He said he never thought the stag would “try and leap over the cyclists”.


“As I was standing waiting for a group of cyclists to approach, I heard a rustling behind me and I turned to see a couple of stags running parallel to the road,” he told the BBC.
