A motorist was given a rude awakening while driving through Ribbleton on Thursday afternoon.
Johannes Christian von Voges was making his way along Cromwell Road.
He had a dashcam running and it is usually capturing potholes, speed humps and parked cars.
But on this journey there was something far more unusual in his path.
As he goes along the road and pulls in for a car to pass you can see an object lying in the road.
Mr von Voges said the object was a sex toy.
It is not known how it came to be there.
