An elephant held up traffic as it checked passing vehicles for food in Thailand.

Footage shows the jumbo inspecting the cars caught in a traffic jam like a checkpoint officer as motorists slowly moved to avoid scaring it in Sa Kaeo province on June 27.

Motorist Nung Ning Ekon said: ‘We were scared that the elephant might trample at us but it let us leave when it saw we didn’t have its favourite fruits.’
