Motorist shocked to see rodent run along windscreen wipers as she drives on the M25 at 55mph

This is startling moment a mouse climbed out from under the bonnet of a van on the motorway – and started running up and down the windscreen wipers.

Sally Hall, 55, was driving her horse box with her husband Colin on the M25 in Kent when she suddenly spotted the furry daredevil.

Colin filmed the rodent running up and down the wiper blade as the vehicle travelled at 55mph.

The mouse disappeared back into the engine compartment for the rest of the journey before Sally rescued him at their destination and set him free. 

Sally, from Saint Mary’s Bay, Kent, said: ‘Our horse box hadn’t been used for a few weeks and had been parked next to a playing field so I think he must have come from there.

‘He gave us a shock – I was so worried he was going to jump off.

‘Being an animal lover, I couldn’t bear it if I’d watched him hurt himself.

The cheeky rodent then disappeared back into the engine compartment before Sally was able to rescue him at their destination and set him free

‘We were at least half way through our journey and on the M25 when he appeared, so I guess he’d tucked himself away quite safely.

‘Knowing that he’d gone back into the engine compartment gave me more hope that he would be ok.

‘It wouldn’t have been safe for us to stop, so we were pleased that he hung on until we reached the showground and then we could let him free in the fields there.’

The video was shot on the M25 from New Romney to Dartford in Kent on October 10 last year, when Sally was on her way to a dressage competition.
