John Bishop has shared the aftermath of a car accident he was involved in while heading to catch a ferry to Ireland.

The comedian, 54, was behind the wheel when he swerved to avoid a car after an animal walked into the middle of the road.

He came out of the crash unharmed and logged into his Instagram account to share an image of his Range Rover after it crashed into a barrier on the side of the road.

John also posed for a snap alongside two police officers who helped him out following the incident.

The caption read: "I was driving to catch a ferry to Ireland when something happened!! To avoid a car that was swerving to avoid a 'big chicken' as I overtook I ended up like this.

"Nobody was hurt thanks to @landrover_uk being brilliant and no oncoming traffic. I missed my ferry but went on as a foot passenger on a later one thank to James and Tony from @dyfedpowyspolice.

"Amazing how helpful people can be when you need them and thanks to the other drivers for staying including Andrew who I think sadly hit the 'big chicken' anyway."

John's car had a broken windshield after the accident while there also appeared to be damage done to the front.
