A Frenchman pedalling home from Britain on a rickshaw took a wrong turn onto a dual-carriageway and was stopped by police on Wednesday.

The rider, dressed in a straw hat and a grey sweater despite heavy rain, was apprehended near the town of Lewes in southern England.

"Police helping a lost French man... on his way to Paris on his Rickshaw," local police wrote on Twitter, with a photo of the man astride his three-wheeled cart.

Police escorted the rider to the end of the motorway, where he was able to join a cycle path to continue his journey via the port of Newhaven.
