A sex doll in the bushes along the A28 near Haren was mistaken for a human body by a road inspector on Friday afternoon, an extraordinary investigative officer (BOA) writes on Twitter on Saturday.

The startled inspector immediately reported to the municipality of Groningen because he believed that there was a person in the bushes. However, after further investigation, the man found out that it was not a body, but a sex doll.

The enforcers who came to the report removed the doll, to prevent more people from mistaking the object for a human body.

It is unclear who left the doll in the bushes. It is also not clear how long the doll has been there.
