A penguin was picked up by police officers in Peru over the weekend after it was seen running through the streets.

In video that's emerged online, the bird, now known was 'Pingui', can be seen being fed fish once it arrives at the police station.

Pingui had fallen from a vehicle onto the streets, Sky News reported.

The broadcaster says arrangements are being made to take the bird to a penguin habit, located near where he was found.
