The low loader carrying the chopper began its journey at Burford at 9.30am on Wednesday morning.

It was escorted by Gloucestershire Police, who accompanied it along the A429 and the A419 to its final detination at Hare Bushes in Cirencester. 

The hour-long journey caused some delays on the roads, particularly because of the narrow routes, but as a result some motorists were lucky enough to get up close to the impressive vehicle.
